Sudip Bandyopadhyay, Trinamool Lawmaker, Arrested In Rose Valley Chit Fund Scam

The Central Bureau of Investigation has arrested prominent TMC leader and MP Sudip Bandyopadhyay in connection with the Rose Valley chit fund scam.

Despite the fact that the TMC is calling the arrest of the actor-turned-politician a witchhunt by the BJP, it looks like the fire of Rose Valley chit fund scam will soon engulf the Mamata government in West Bengal. Asserting that TMC MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay's arrest won't stop them from protesting, Mamata said she will take legal battle and seek justice from court. Let him arrest all of us.

Banerjee has said that she will protest against the arrest in Kolkata on Wednesday.

Hitting out at the PM and BJP supremo Amit Shah, Banerjee said: "Why should Narendra Modi and Amit Shah not be arrested?"

CBI sources said Bandyopadhyay is being flown to Odisha, like Tapas Pal, and would be produced in court there tomorrow in connection with the Rose Valley case.

Paul was arrested on December 30 and later shifted to Bhubaneswar for further interrogation.

Actress Debbie Reynolds Has Died at 84
There's been an outpouring of grief as celebrities pay tribute to Debbie Reynolds , Hollywood icon and mother of Carrie Fisher. When she was 16 she won the Miss Burbank beauty contest , which led to a seven-year contract with Warner Bros. studios.

The chief minister challenged Modi that he can't suppress the voice of the people.

While the TMCCP supporters claim that Bandyopadhyay has been arrested because of BJP's political vindictiveness, BJP supporters claim that the attack on their office was planned.

"It is all because of our fight against NoteBandi (note ban)". Numerous opposition parties are scared to speak up against BJP policies but we will not keep mum. Later many TMC MLAs and MPs including Dinesh Trivedi and Partha Chatterjee reached Kolkata's CBI office.

BJP national secretary Siddharth Nath Singh questioned why only TMC leaders were being found to be involved in "all the chit fund scams".

The BJP leader said violence by the TMC was clear reflection that the Chief Minister was "fearful" as the CBI investigation was at her "doorstep". "From the day Mamata Banerjee held a joint press conference with Rahul Gandhi and other opposition leaders, a new wave of vendetta has been unleashed by Modiji", Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said.
