Trinamool conspiring to kill me: Former party functionary Asif Khan

Kolkata, Nov 25: Former Trinamool functionary Asif Khan, now behind bars in alleged cheating cases, on Tuesday claimed there was a conspiracy hatched by the West Bengal government to kill him.

"There is a conspiracy going on to kill me. The state government is conspiring to kill me," Khan told media persons while being presented before a city court.

Described as a "habitual cheater" by police, Khan was arrested earlier in the month. A city court during the day extended his judicial custody till Dec 9.

Khan, a former Trinamool convenor in Uttar Pradesh, has been alleging the complicity of several of his former party leaders in the multi-crore rupee Saradha scam.

Once a close associate of Trinamool national general secretary and former railway minister Mukul Roy, Khan in September severed all ties with the party and floated his own political outfit Tahafaz-e-Islam after the Central Bureau of Investigation grilled him in connection with the Saradha scam.
