Kunal Ghosh is the most important link for the CBI to nail West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamta Banerjee. Ghosh known for his outbursts in public against the leadership is extremely sensitive when he is questioned in CBI custody.
Breaking down in custody Kunal Ghosh says, “everyone in the TMC top leadership knew that the Saradha Scam was about to be busted. There was a lot of fire fighting that was done and each one was instructed that the top names should not tumble out. Keep Mamta out of this scam at any cost as she is nurturing a bigger role at the centre and any scam at this point in time could prove fatal to that dream of hers. Sudipto Sen was assured that his arrest would only be temporary and everyone part of the scam had ensured that all the money transactions would never come out in the open. Rajat Majumdar who had a lot of information about the intelligence and the manner in which the cops were functioning was put in charge of this operation cover up. I never knew even for once that they would make me the scapegoat. Later I got to know that the top leadership was ready to sacrifice as many names as possible but the prime agenda was to ensure that the name of the Chief Minister was never dragged into this mess.

In the wake of their key operative Haider Ali being arrested the SIMI is looking to make a come back.

Not just the Bangladesh based Jamaat-e-Islami, but Saradha funds were also diverted to Kashmiri separatists who had assured Sudipto Sen of a free passage through Kashmir in case the noose started to tighten around his neck. An exhaustive report prepared by the Indian Intelligence Bureau spills the beans on the murky deals between the Saradha group and West Bengal politicians who threw caution to even national security in order to park their funds and finance terrorist groups and seperatists. This has prompted the IB to suggest filing of terrorism charges against all those leaders who helped move the Saradha funds which landed in the hands of seperatists and Bangladeshi based terrorists.
Take as many people possible as hostage and bring the Indian government to its knees is what the instruction given to the Pakistan spy arrested two days back. Arun Selvaraj, the Sri Lankan working for the Pakistan’s ISI was arrested in Chennai after he was found to be spying and scouting for targets. He was working undercover as an events manager through which he tried to access information of vital installations in Chennai.
His primary target was the Chennai markets and he was surveying the crowded areas and passing on information to his handlers in the Pakistan High Commission. According to the latest interrogation of Selvaraj which is being clubbed with that of Sakir Hussain a spy arrested in connection with the same case a few months back, the big intet of the ISI was to carry out a major fidayeen attack in the crowded Chennai markets, take as many people as possible hostage and throw in demands to the Indian government.
The Intelligence Bureau has sounded an alert directing the securing of all borders especially in the Valley, Nepal and Bangladesh as the army battles it out to save the flood victims in Kashmir. The IB in its alert issued to all the forces protecting the Indian borders has warned of major infiltration since at the moment the army has put all its resources into saving the flood victims.
Heavy infiltration is expected through the borders of Valley, Nepal and Bangladesh, the alert also points out. The IB alert also warns that some in the guise of aiding the flood victims would also try and cross over and set up camp in the Valley. It has become a herculean task for the army to monitor the infiltrations at this stage. The IB alert states that moving additional forces to the Valley to monitor the flood situation and also the infiltration could lead terrorists to push their men in through the borders of Nepal and also Bangladesh. Currently there are over 30000 army personnel who are engaged in rescuing the flood victims and this means none of them are able to focus completely on the infiltrations.
