Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Sudip Bandhopadhyay was arrested by the CBI in the matter. The CBI had earlier on December 30 arrested TMC MP Tapas Paul for his alleged involvement in this scam. The actor-politician was a director in two companies of the Rose Valley, a leisure and entertainment group, that has been accused of illegally accumulating Rs.17,000 crores in small savings through a Ponzi scheme. The group has been under investigation for almost two years. (ANI)
