Kolkata: The West Bengal CID on Saturday questioned BJP’s Rajya Sabha MP Roopa Ganguly here in connection with a child trafficking case in Jalpaiguri, a senior official said.

A team of the agency’s officers went to Ms Ganguly’s south Kolkata residence to question her over her alleged meeting with former BJP women wing general secretary Juhi Chowdhury, an accused in the case who was under arrest, a senior CID official said.

 

The Criminal Investigation Department had unearthed a child trafficking racket earlier this year under which babies and children were allegedly sold, some to foreigners, through illegal adoption deals.

Ms Ganguly later told reporters, “They wanted to ask some questions to solve the case and understand the situation. I told them what I knew. There is no charge against me. It is a political vendetta. I am saying this from day one.”

Alleging that false cases were slapped against BJP workers in the state, the Rajya Sabha MP said she believed that Chowdhury was “not guilty”.

 

The state CID had also summoned BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya and two other leaders for questioning in the same case.
