West Bengal SSC Recruitment Scam: Man Who Played Middleman in SSC Scam Arrested


: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has made a significant breakthrough in the investigation of the West Bengal School Service Commission (SSC) recruitment scam. The agency has apprehended an individual suspected of acting as a middleman in facilitating fraudulent activities within the SSC recruitment process. This arrest marks a pivotal development in unraveling the complexities of the scam that has rattled the state.

Arrest and Interrogation

The suspect, who had previously been detained by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the same case back in 2022, has once again found himself in legal jeopardy. Despite being released subsequent to his initial arrest, intensive questioning and thorough searches conducted at his residence and workplace have led to his reapprehension.

An official statement from the Enforcement Directorate revealed that the suspect was taken into custody late on Monday night following extensive interrogation sessions. The agency has gathered compelling evidence pointing towards his involvement as a middleman in orchestrating fraudulent practices within the SSC recruitment framework.

Legal Proceedings

The arrested individual is scheduled to appear before the city court today to face formal charges. It is noteworthy that despite having been granted bail by the Supreme Court following his previous arrest in 2022, the suspect has once again found himself entangled in the legal ramifications of the ongoing investigation.

Provident Fund Dues Scam

In a simultaneous operation, the Enforcement Directorate conducted raids at the premises belonging to the owner of a jute mill, who is also under scrutiny for his alleged involvement in the Provident Fund Dues Scam. The raids, which involved a sizable deployment of central forces, targeted both the residential and office spaces associated with the jute mill owner.

An official statement from the agency disclosed that the outstanding Provident Fund dues linked to the accused have ballooned to a staggering sum of Rs 21 crore. This revelation underscores the gravity of the financial malfeasance that has permeated various sectors within the state.
