Partha-Arpita to be produced before Court after their health check-up

After their health check-up, ousted former Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee and his close associate Arpita Mukherjee will be produced before the court in the next few hours to decide on whether the duo will be granted bail or the period of their custody be extended.

They are under 10-day custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) till August 3. The ED officials took Partha and Arpita to ESI Hospital at Joka for medical examination from the CGO complex on Wednesday at around 11 am.

The ED officials earlier arrested Partha Chatterjee on July 23 after 27 hours of interrogation over the SSC recruitment corruption case. Shortly after his arrest, Arpita was also arrested by the investigators after recovering Rs 22 crores from her Kolkata residence, following which  the court ordered the custody of Partha-Arpita for 10 days in the interest of investigation. 

According to ED sources, while Arpita cooperated during the investigation, Partha has not yet disclosed any information so far. Many believe that the ED custody of former minister may be extended for a few some days to fetch more information in connection with the teacher recruitment scam case.
