OFFICIALS of the Enforcement Directorate (ED), probing the multi-crore teacher recruitment scam, on Tuesday conducted search operations at two flats and another shop allegedly linked to Arpita Mukherjee, a close aide of suspended TMC leader Partha Chatterjee.
Sleuths of ED raided two flats in South Kolkata – one on Panditiya Road and the other in Madurdaha – during the day, along with another nail art shop in the northern part of the city, agency sources said.
ED had earlier recovered around Rs 50 crore in cash, along with jewellery, from her two apartments in Tollygunge and Belghoria areas. Meanwhile, the ED sleuths revealed that the shell company clandestinely linked to Arpita Mukherjee.
The name of the company is Zamira Sunshines Limited, which was incorporated on March 20, 2015.
As per the records of the Registrar of Companies (ROC) under the Union Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the company is involved in real estate activities with own or leased property, which includes buying, selling, renting and operating of self-owned or leased real estate such as apartment building and dwellings, non-residential buildings, developing and subdividing real estate into lots, among others. According to ED sources, there are two factors for the Zamira Sunshines Limited to come under the scanner of the Central agency. The first reason is the registered address of the company, which is Club Town Heights, 14 BT Road, Block - 5, FLAT - 8A, Kolkata- West Bengal-700056, the same housing complex at Belghoria in the northern outskirts of Kolkata, which houses the flat of Arpita Mukherjee, where from ED recovered huge quantities of cash and gold on July 28.
The second factor is even more interesting, which is the email ID registered with the company. The email ID is [email protected], the information of which the ED officials received from a piece of paper that was found in Arpita Mukherjee’s falt in the Diamond City housing complex at Tollygunge in South Kolkata.
