Police revisits Diamond City residence, takes information about Partha’s pets

After the arrest of former Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee and his “close aide” Arpita Mukherjee, police visited a premium housing apartment in Kolkata’s Tollygunge area to fetch information about the pet dogs that Partha owned.

As per sources, his dogs were cooped up at two flats on the 18th floor – 18D and 18E – at Diamond City South in Tollygunge. A huge sum of money worth around Rs 22 crores were recovered from one of the flats from the same housing complex.

The city police had submitted a detailed report on the condition of the pets to Lalbazar headquarters.  According to sources, while one person has been deployed full time to take care of the dogs, two people are responsible to train them. It is also learnt that one of the relatives of Partha has at present taken the responsibility to feed the canines.  

Several NGOs, working for the welfare of animals, tried contacting with the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and police personnel. An NGO, Voice for the Voiceless, that works with animals claimed that they had approached the ED to get the custody of the dogs after Chatterjee and Mukherjee were arrested.

Partha Chatterjee and Arpita Mukherjee were arrested by the ED officials last week in connection with the teacher recruitment corruption case.

Expensive valuables including 5 kg gold and money worth Rs 50 crores were recovered by the officials from two of Arpita’s flats on Thursday. Whereas, important official documents related to teacher’s appointment and transfer of posts, admit cards, hard disc and mobile phones were found from Partha’s house.
