KOLKATA: The CBI has obtained a photograph of Sharada group chief Sudipto Sen handing over money to a Trinamool Congress leader for paying the match fees of Argentinean striker Lionel Messi and other international football players who had come to play here in 2011. Investigators believe that the photo as well as other documentary evidence will help them establish the link between Sudipto Sen and many influential politicians mostly belonging to the ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal.

While interrogating Sudipto Sen, the CBI officials asked him why he fled from West Bengal since he had “connections with such influential politicians, bureaucrats and police officers”. He told the sleuths that following a meeting at the bungalow of a politician in New Delhi in April 2013, he told the top TMC leader about his desperate situation since he had been bled white of his finances.

The same leader advised him to seek refuge in Kashmir and made arrangements through his contacts for him to reach Sonemarg in the Valley from where he was arrested. Sudipto Sen, who was produced before the judge at Khurdah Sessions Court in Odisha on Friday, has been remanded in custody for 10 days.
