KOLKATA:TMC Rajya Sabha MP Srinjoy Bose, who was arrested by the CBI in connection with the multi-crore Saradha scam, was on Wednesday granted conditional bail by the Alipore court on medical grounds.
The CBI, which is likely to name him in its third chargesheet next week has, however, decided to file a review petition against the move to enlarge the MP on bail. The judge granted bail to the tainted MP on the condition that he would cooperate with the investigation.
Bose also cannot leave the city or go abroad. He has been directed to report to the local police station and surrender his passport and other identification documents with the authorities.
The MP, who was arrested in November, after being interrogated by intelligence agencies on his alleged involvement in the high-profile case, spent most of the last 75 days either in CBI custody or at SSKM Hospital citing ill health.
Bose is the only TMC leader arrested in the case to have secured a bail. TMC Rajya Sabha MP Kunal Ghosh, state Transport Minister Madan Mitra and former state police chief-turned TMC leader Rajat Majumdar are still in jail.
