Saayoni Ghosh was summoned by the ED in connection with the teachers’ recruitment scam case in West Bengal on Friday.
Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate issued a summon to Trinamool Congress national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee to appear before it on June 13 in connection with the alleged teacher recruitment scam on June 8.

Trinamool Congress MP Shatrughan Sinha on Friday slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government for harassing the opposition using central agencies and claimed that it its their “desperate attempt for revenge.”
“Some people are there, and some agencies that are there are not doing the right thing; they are trying unsuccessfully to harass many people, especially the opposition,” Shatrughan Sinha said.
Lashing out at the BJP, he said that it is a desperate attempt to take revenge before they go out of power. “It is a desperate attempt for revenge; as the lamp flickers before extinguishing, the same condition exists for the BJP,” he said.
