NEW DELHI: It is the details of alleged benami properties of Bengal cabinet minister Partha Chatterjee, recovered during Enforcement Directorate‘s search at his premises on Friday, which led the agency to Arpita Mukerjee and the cash hoard at her flat.
Sources said the recovery of Rs 21 crore in cash from Arpita’s residence was possible only after ED officials followed the lead from the property documents seized at Chatterjee’s premises having her name. While the TMC minister had taken care not to keep cash with him, he had perhaps fear of losing control of the valuable properties and kept the details of the flats registered in Arpita’s name. The agency found details of at least eight properties in the name of Arpita, which prima facie proved it was all benami assets acquired using the ‘proceeds of crime’ in the teachers’ recruitment scam.
Documents recovered during the search and digital evidence have revealed involvement of other senior TMC leaders in the recruitment scam, sources claimed.
ED came into the scene on the basis of an FIR registered by CBI at the Calcutta HC’s behest into corruption in the recruitment of assistant teachers of Classes IX-XII and primary teachers. The recovery of cash at Arpita’s place and property documents found on Chatterjee marked a breakthrough that had eluded CBI all this while, leading the HC to express its exasperation with the progress of the probe.
CBI also could not find evidence of the close ties between Chatterjee and Arpita Mukherjee, something which has reinforced ED’s confidence in the method of its investigation and its ability to locate alleged illegal cash.
