KOLKATA: The CBI officials probing the multi-crore Saradha scam will soon summon a  leader of the ruling TMC’s trade union wing, who is quite close to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, and are closely monitoring the 150 bank  accounts of some TMC leaders as well as businessmen linked to the party.

A CBI official on Thursday said large sums of money had been transferred to several bank accounts of TMC politicians, including MLAs and ministers, who were beneficiaries of the scam.

Along with the Enforcement Directorate, CBI is probing the links between Saradha Group’s bank accounts and these politicians. As many as 150 such accounts in different banks have been identified.

While being interrogated, painter Suvaprasanna, a Mamata acolyte, told the sleuths about the vital role this INTTUC leader had allegedly played when he sold his Bengali television channel “Ekhon Somoy” to Saradha Group chairman Sudipto Sen.
