Tapas Mondal, who owns a teacher training centre, was asked to bring bank account documents of teacher training centers to the ED office. ED had earlier conducted searches at several places in Kolkata, including Mondal’s residence near Kamakhya Balak Ashram and his office, in connection with its probe into the recruitment scam in West Bengal, where some of the top leaders of the ruling TMC are under the lens.
