CBI grills Bengal Minister Paresh Adhikari for third day of daughter’s ‘illegal’ appointment

Polling agency CBI interviewed Bengal Minister Paresh Adhikari for the third consecutive day

Kolkata:

Polling agency CBI today questioned West Bengal Minister Paresh Adhikari for the third consecutive day over the ‘illegal’ appointment of his daughter Ankita as a primary school teacher.

The Calcutta High Court on Friday dismissed Ankita Adhikari from her job at a government-subsidized school and demanded that she return the salary she received during her 41 months as a teacher.

Paresh Adhikari, the Minister of State for Education, arrived at the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) office around 10:35 a.m. with a dossier which sources close to him said contained several important documents related to the appointment .

According to a CBI official, Mr Adhikari may be asked about various phone calls he made from his mobile phone regarding the nomination of his daughter Ankita.

“The calls may relate to his daughter’s appointment as an assistant teacher at an elementary school. Like yesterday, we will be filming the entire interrogation,” the CBI detective said.

The MP for Mekliganj was questioned for more than nine hours on Friday and almost four hours on Thursday evening as part of the investigation.

CBI insiders have told Press Trust of India that central agency officials may call Ankita Adhikari for questioning next week.
