Kolkata: Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday raided the house of Trinamool Congress (TMC) minister Chandranath Sinha at Bolpur in Birbhum district for his alleged connection into the alleged SSC recruitment scam.

A large contingent of central forces had covered the area when the central sleuths entered Sinha’s house. When the ED officers reached his house, the MSME and textile minister was hot at his residence.

According to sources, Sinha was in his ancestral house in Murarai in the same district and after being informed he reached Bolpur.

Talking to the media, Sinha said that he is ‘not’ connected with any scams.
