CBI has arrested former West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) president Kalyanmoy Ganguly for his alleged involvement in the School Service Commission (SSC) recruitment scam.

After six hours of questioning, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested former West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) president Kalyanmoy Ganguly in connection with the Group C recruitment scam case.

CBI conducted raids at the offices of ND Infosystems Pvt Ltd and NYSA communications Pvt Ltd and the residential premises of their proprietors Niladri Das and Puniit Kumar respectively, as reported by Times Now.

Ganguly was summoned by CBI yesterday with several documents and he was questioned for hours at Nizam Palace. As per sources, he reached on time but could not submit all documents requested by CBI. After his arrest, CBI officials took him to the SSKM hospital in Kolkata for the medical check-up.

CBI, which is probing the multi-crore job scam in Bengal, has registered FIRs under non-bailable sections against Sinha, Saha and three other officers, including Kalyanmoy Ganguly, Soumitra Sarkar, and Samarjit Acharya in the alleged scam.

Recently, the agency also arrested the former advisor of the SSC, Dr Shanti Prasad Sinha, and its ex-secretary Ashok Kumar Saha.
