Bengal school case: Sujay Bhadra eventually leaves the hospital and returns to the correctional home

Sujay Krishna Bhadra, one of the main suspects in the alleged cash-for-school-job scam in West Bengal, has been returned to the Presidency Central Correctional Home in South Kolkata after more than six months at the state-run SSKM Medical College & Hospital following his bypass surgery in August of last year.

According to sources inside the state correctional services department, Bhadra was quietly moved back to the detention facility late on Monday evening after it was decided to release him from the hospital on Monday afternoon.

Recall that he was entangled in controversy throughout the whole six months of his hospital stay.

Initially, the medical community questioned the veracity of his protracted recuperation after the bypass procedure.

Secondly, Bhadra was allegedly kept in hospital on purpose to evade the voice sample test, according to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) detectives looking into the matter.

Nonetheless, the ED’s detectives were able to complete the voice sample test in the first week of January this year thanks to an order from the Calcutta High Court. We are awaiting the whole forensic report from the test.

In the meanwhile, Bhadra’s attorney appeared before a Calcutta High Court single-judge bench to request medical bail. On February 23, the final order on this count is anticipated.
