Cattle smuggling case: CBI tightens noose around Anubrata Mondal, daughter Sukanya submits her INCOME details

Kolkata: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has further tightened the noose around TMC strongman Anubrata Mondal in the cattle smuggling case and his daughter Sukanya has now submitted her income-expenditure details to the central probe agency. Sukanya Mondal, daughter of Trinamool Congress’ powerful leader, has submitted copies of her income tax returns details for the last five years.

However, instead of physically appearing at the CBI office, Sukanya Mondal sent the details in a sealed envelope through her counsel, who submitted the same at the central agency`s Nizam Palace office in central Kolkata.

Sukanya Mondal, who is a primary teacher in a state-run school at Bolpur in the Birbhum district of West Bengal, is also a director of two companies as well as the co-owner of a couple of rice mills at Bolpur.

CBI officials were intrigued on what basis a primary teacher of a state-run school drawing a salary in the few thousands of rupees became directors and owners of these entities and that is why the investigation sleuths had sought her income and expenditure details for the last few years.

Previously too, the CBI sleuths had sought these details from Sukanya Mondal which went unheeded. Recently, the CBI officers went to her residence at Bolpur and served her the notice seeking details.

According to sources, the CBI sleuths want to have a clear idea about the sources of funds for the businesses in her name. It is further learnt that CBI had sent notices to two banks where Sukanya Mondal has accounts and sought information on whether any transactions in foreign currencies has been made from these accounts or not.

During the recent questioning by CBI, she feigned ignorance about her property details and claimed that her father`s chartered accountant Manish Kothari was aware of it. Kothari has also been questioned by the central agency sleuths in the matter.

Anubrata Mondal is currently in judicial custody at Asansol Special Correction Home in the West Burdwan district of West Bengal. He will be presented again at the special court of CBI in Asansol on October 5.
