CBI registers a new FIR investigating irregularities by the West Bengal Board of Primary Education over the appointment of teachers
In response to allegations of irregularities in the recruitment of primary school teachers by the West Bengal Board of Primary Education, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed a new formal investigation report (FIR) (WBBPE).
The CBI is looking into allegations of irregularities at government-run schools.
Further information on the FIR is needed.
Due to Manik Bhattacharya's active and direct involvement in the money laundering offense, as well as his ongoing lack of cooperation with the investigation, the ED detained him in October of last year in connection with the West Bengal teacher recruitment scam. He was also the former president of the West Bengal Board of Professional Examination.
Manik Bhattacharya and his family's moveable goods worth Rs 8 crore were temporarily seized by the ED in December of last year. In connection with the case, the investigation agency also confiscated cash totaling more than Rs 49.80 crore, gold and jewelry valued at Rs 5.08 crore, and connected properties worth Rs 56.15 crore. After the proceedings, there was a total seizure and attachment of Rs. 111 crore.
The Special Court (PMLA) in Kolkata received a supplemental prosecution case from ED against six suspects and businesses in the West Bengal Teachers' Recruitment Scam.
Manik Bhattacharya, a TMC lawmaker, his wife Satarupa, their son Souvik, a former president of the West Bengal Board of Primary Education, Tapas Kumar Mondal, the head of a teacher-training facility, and other others were among those charged.
Acuere Consulting Services and Educlasses Online are the two organizations mentioned in the accusation.
The bureau said that more inquiry into the situation is ongoing.
