Trinamool Congress MP Sudip Bandopadhyay said that he would appear before the CBI on 3 January (today) in connection with the investigation into the Rose Valley chit fund scam.
"I was first called on 15 November, but I couldn't go as Parliament was in session. Then they called me again in the last last week of December asking me to appear on 30 December. I told them I want to come on 18 January. But the CBI told me to come on 3 January, to which I agreed," Mr Bandopadhyay told PTI.
The CBI had issued summons to two Trinamool Congress MPs, Sudip Bandyopadhyay and Tapas Pal, on 27 December in connection with the alleged Rose Valley scam, one of the cases being probed by the investigating agency as part of chit fund scams Pal was arrested on Friday.
A senior CBI official said based on the questioning of Mr Bandopadhyay the agency would decide the next line of action.
"Earlier, we had called him twice, but he did not turn up. He was again called on December 30 but he said he would come on 3 January. So now if he does not turn up, we will look into other options after January 3," a CBI official had told PTI on condition of anonymity.
