Kolkata: Saradha scam accused Kunal Ghosh on Monday threatened to commit suicide if the CBI did not take proper action against 'those involved' within three days in front of a magistrate when he was produced before a city court.
"Investigation is being influenced. It is not acceptable that I will rot in jail while those involved will roam freely. I am giving three days' time, if action is not taken I will commit suicide," the suspended TMC MP told Magistrate Arvind Mishra at Bankshall Court in Kolkata.
"I pray to you to pass an order that during these three days, none of my relatives or my lawyer be allowed to meet me or else I may get influenced and dissuaded," Ghosh, who had during earlier court hearings accused some top Trinamool Congress leaders of having benefitted from the scam, told the judge.
Ghosh, a journalist by profession and a former CEO of Saradha Group firm Bengal Media Ltd, claimed that the CBI had not acted on the files of Bengal Media that were shown to him or against those he had named.
He also claimed that the Kolkata Police commissioner had stood by Saradha Group CEO and main accused Sudipta Sen, who was also in the dock of the court room along with Ghosh, during a function and had said that he was good person.
