Doctors say Tapas Paul fit to be interrogated after arrested MP complains of health problems

Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay arrested by the CBI in Kolkata today in connection with the Rose Valley Chit Fund Scam as he didn't cooperate in probe.

Mamata Banerjee said that if they think that after the arrest of TMC MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay, we will not protest, they are wrong.

The situation in Kolkata became critical soon after Bandyopadhyay's arrest as many TMC workers and leaders stood up on their toes to protest the arrest.

Bandyopadhyay was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation in connection with the Rose Valley Chit Fund scam.

Investigators suspect that Bandopadhyay was in company with those who helped Rose Valley boss Gautam Kundu launder money overseas.

Later, after the violent outburst died down, TMCCP supporters took part is a sit down demonstration to protest BJP's attempt to politically use the CBI to arrest their leader.

Rose Valley had allegedly taken Rs 450 crore from its poor investors in Odisha, a chargesheet filed by the CBI in January 2016 had said.

Trinamool supremo and West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee has called for an emergency meeting on Sudip's arrest.

"PM Modi and Amit Shah should be arrested". Some eleven BJP workers including two state-level leaders were injured in the incident. "Babul Supriyo and Sujan Chakraborty must be arrested next", Banerjee said. Let him arrest all of us. Trinamool leaders are involved in several chit fund scams, that has led to defrauding of millions.

Paul was arrested on December 30 and later shifted to Bhubaneswar for further interrogation. She also alleged that the Prime Minister had "involved Adanis in the notebandi scam and he has been entrusted to get new notes printed from overseas".

"This is vendetta politics because the Trinamool is fighting against the Centre over demonetisation", she told the media. Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala claimed that CBI and ED were pressurised and pushed by none other than the Prime Minister and his office to unleash political vendetta against "anyone who raises a voice".
