Jolt to Bengal govt at Calcutta HC on WBSSC recruitment scam, Partha Chatterjee summoned by CBI

Kolkata, 18/5: The West Bengal government on Wednesday received two jolts — one after the other at the Calcutta High Court, pertaining to the recruitment irregularities in the West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC).



On the one hand, a division bench of Justice Subrata Talukdar and Justice Ananda Kumar Mukherjee upheld the earlier order by the single judge bench of Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay ordering CBI inquiry in all the seven cases pertaining to WBSSC recruitment irregularities.


Before the state government could fathom the shock, another jolt came as the single judge bench of Justice Gangopadhyay ordered the then state Education Minister and Trinamool Congress secretary general, Partha Chatterjee to be present at the CBI office at Nizam Palace in central Kolkata on Wednesday by 6 p.m. Justice Gangopadhyay has also authorized the central agency sleuths to even arrest Chatterjee, currently the state Commerce & Industry Minister, if the latter does not cooperate in the process of investigation.
