Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], Dec. 22 (ANI): The Calcutta High Court on Thursday extended to January 10, the interim bail of suspended Trinamool Congress (TMC) lawmaker Kunal Ghosh in connection with his involvement in Saradha chit-fund scam. Ghosh, an accused in the Saradha scam, was on October granted interim bail against a bail bond of Rs. two lakh by the Calcutta High Court. Ghosh had earlier in October last year gone on an indefinite hunger strike inside the Calcutta jail alleging unfair probe against him by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The CBI had interrogated the suspended TMC leader in December last year. Ghosh was arrested on November 23, 2013, and sent to custody by the CBI on September 4, 2014, after it took over the investigation on the orders of the Supreme Court. (ANI)
