Agartala, September 27 (TIWN): Kajal Rani Chakraborty and Sangeeta Chakraborty, mother and wife of Arnab Chakraborty, prime accused of the Rs. 5 crore scam from Rashtriya Madhyamik Siksha Abhiyan (RMSA) today surrendered before the Chief Judicial Magistrate’s (CJM) Court at Agartala.

They were sent to police remand for five days, official sources said.

Additional Superintendent (Urban) Jayanta Choudhury said this evening that the duo earlier applied for anticipatory bail at the High Court of Tripura. The High Court turned down the anticipatory bail petition following which the defending counsel made them to surrender themselves at the CJM court on Saturday.

During interrogation, Arnab earlier disclosed that he had transferred huge amount of money embezzled from the RMSA funds into bank accounts of his wife and mother.

The sleuths succeeded to seize Rs. 1 crore from the bank accounts of his wife and mother in different private banks.

Police sources earlier said that Arnab Chakraborty, who was arrested from a brothel in Baguiati in West Bengal, revealed during interrogation that he was unauthorized leave when the funds were embezzled. Further investigation, however, found that the accused was on authorized leave.

Arnab was further known to have told investigators during interrogation that his superiors prompted and encouraged him to withdraw money by forging the funds kept under his jurisdiction.

Asked about the latest progress in the investigation on the scam, Additional SP (Urban) Jayanta Chakraborty said that the cops are expecting more information from interrogation on relatives of accused Chakraborty.
