Four members of the advisory committee appeared at the CBI office in a corruption case against teachers and staff at the school. The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) interrogated Sukanta Acharya, Prabir Kumar Bandyopadhyay, Alok Kumar Sarkar and Tapas Panja to verify the information obtained during the interrogation of Shantiprasad Sinha, convener of the advisory committee on the appointment of the School Service Commission.
A single bench Justice by Abhijit Gangopadhyay directed the four members to appear before the CBI on Monday afternoon. It was directed that Sukanta and Prabir Kumar should go to CBI by 2 pm. The Bidhannagar Police Commissionerate was given the responsibility to take them. Alok Kumar and Tapas were supposed to appear before 3 pm. The Deputy Commissioner (Central) of Calcutta Police was given the task of taking them there. A case has also been filed in the division bench challenging the order. But as no verdict has been reached in the case yet, so the four officers had to face the investigators.
Last week, Shantiprasad confronted the CBI at 11 pm on the orders of the High Court. According to CBI sources, the interrogation of the four persons was planned in order to crosscheck the information obtained by the CBI from Shantiprasad. After questioning him, the four were also asked to go to the office of the Central Investigation Agency on Friday. But they did not show up.
