The Enforcement Directorate (ED), which is looking into the matter, has discovered assets and property belonging to Trinamool Congress leader Santanu Bandyopadhyay that is estimated to be worth around Rs 20 crore. Bandyopadhyay was arrested in connection with the massive teachers recruitment scam in West Bengal.
The sum was already specified by ED on this count in the remand letter. The asset information obtained by ED sleuths shows that Bandyopadhyay, his wife Priyanka Bandyopadhyay, or both of them jointly possess the assets.
