Tapas Mandal, the mediator detained in the case, has had 12 bank accounts frozen by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) agents looking into the crore rupees teacher recruitment scam in West Bengal.
Six of the board’s twelve private bank accounts are tied to the Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) and Diploma in Elementary Education (D.El.Ed) colleges that they own. At the same time, the other six are private accounts linked to other institutions.
The multi-crore teachers scam in the state has already landed Bhattacharya, his wife Satrupa, and their son Souvik in judicial custody.
CBI investigators are undertaking a parallel investigation into the case with their colleagues in the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The ED will now look into the transactional information of these 12 accounts.
