CBI Seeks Bank Account Details of West Bengal Law Minister Malaya Ghatak in Coal Smuggling Case

In the ongoing probe related to the coal smuggling case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has requested details of the bank accounts belonging to West Bengal Law Minister Malaya Ghatak and several of his family members from a private bank branch in Kolkata. The central agency has sought comprehensive statements of these accounts since their inception, along with Know Your Customer (KYC) details provided during their opening.

Bank officials have been summoned to the CBI’s anti-corruption branch at Nizam Palace in central Kolkata on December 13, accompanied by all relevant documents.

The move comes after the Enforcement Directorate (ED), conducting a parallel investigation in the coal smuggling case, issued multiple summons to Ghatak, who sought dismissal of the Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) filed against him, but the plea was rejected by the Delhi High Court.
