Saradha scam & suicide attempt: Kunal Ghosh realised he had reached a point of no return

Kolkata, Nov 14: Kunal Ghosh finally did what he had threatened to do. The CBI which has been probing him says that they would investigate the incident as they feel he was being pressured by someone not to reveal names.

CBI sources said that Ghosh was constantly under pressure not to reveal the big names in the Saradha scam and his attempted suicide could be related to just that.

However, looking at the probe against Ghosh it becomes evident that the CBI which had assured him a lot many things just did not live up to the promise.

Ghosh was assured that he would be made approver but instead found his name as a prime accused in the first chargesheet drawn out by the CBI.

Entire investigation was being conducted only to corner him

After the filing of the chargesheet, Ghosh felt completely let down and he felt that the entire investigation was being conducted only to corner him. Moreover, he had always told the CBI that the Saradha scam investigations were positioned in a manner that every agency would commence the probe with him.

Ghosh had during the course of the probe made several pleas to the CBI that he was being made a scapegoat. However he realised that the names being dropped by him were being used only to sensationalise the probe and no concrete action was being taken.

Moreover, after the filing of the first chargesheet, Ghosh realised that he had reached a point of no return. He had made enemies in the West Bengal establishment and the CBI on its part was living up to its promise and appeared to be revolving the probe only around him.

Kunal Ghosh was extremely impatient, says CBI

The CBI, however, defends itself and says that multiple agencies are looking into the probe and it takes time. "Ghosh was extremely impatient and always complained that he was being singled out while that was not the case. We were even going through the findings of the SFIO report which has recommended action against several other big names including Madan Mitra," said CBI sources.

"All these persons would have been questioned and we had no intent of leaving any names out. Even if we were to make Ghosh an approver it would have been towards the trial stage and not so immediately," CBI sources also pointed out.
