Money Laundering Case: ED To Question Abhishek Banerjee Again

Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate will question All India Trinamool Congress secretary and Parliamentarian Abhishek Banerjee and his wife Rujira Banerjee next week in connection with an alleged money laundering case linked to the Bengal coal scam.

Banerjee linked the summons to the BJP’s recent win in the assembly elections in four states and raised questions about the dismissal of his appeal in the High Court challenging the interrogation in Delhi.

“I will go to the Supreme Court. That path is open to me. And we have faith in the topmost justice system in the country,” Banerjee said on Sunday.

According to Banerjee, he was going to Delhi, even though he has been advised bed rest by his doctor following a recent eye procedure.

Prior to his departure for the national capital in the afternoon, Banerjee said he had appealed in the Delhi High Court, saying he should be questioned in Kolkata instead of Delhi since the case is linked to Bengal.

“There is an ED (Enforcement Directorate) office in Kolkata. You can call me as many times as you like. I will come there as I have nothing to hide,” Banerjee said.

Following a long hearing, the court had initially reserved judgment on the matter. Then, after BJP won in four states on March 10, and on March 11, his petition was dismissed, Banerjee alleged.

“I have faith in the judiciary but this cannot be a coincidence,” the TMC All India general secretary added.

“The people of Bengal have defeated them and kicked out the outsiders from Bengal… they are irritated because we haven’t surrendered… we will not surrender… this fight will have to go on…we will see it to the end,” Banerjee added.

The case involves alleged illegal coal mining and theft from Eastern Coalfield Limited’s Kunustoria and Kajoria coal fields.  Allegations came thick and fast that the coal mafia paid regular kickbacks to leaders of West Bengal’s ruling TMC.
