Kolkata: Suspended Trinamool Congress MP and Saradha scam accused Kunal Ghosh, who tried to commit suicide by consuming sleeping pills in jail, is out of danger even as the state government suspended the jail superintendent, doctor and a staff on duty. "Ghosh has told the doctors that he took 30-40 Alprazolam tablets from the evening up to night time Thursday. He was given a stomach wash as per protocol. The contents in his stomach have been sent for forensic examination," SSKM Hospital director Pradip Mitra told mediapersons here. Ghosh, a Rajya Sabha member, was taken to the premier state-run hospital around 3.05 am on Friday in a partially drowsy condition.
Ghosh, who headed Saradha media arm before being arrested in November last year, has been alleging the involvement of several leaders of the ruling Trinamool Congress, including its top brass.
Ghosh had threatened to end his life if the CBI failed to take action against those involved in the scam. Ghosh had threatened to commit suicide when he was produced before a city court on November 10 if CBI did not take "proper action" against those involved within three days.
