Calcutta HC gives Kunal Ghosh conditional permission to travel abroad

A division bench of Judge Jaymalya Bagchi and Judge Ajay Gupta allowed Ghosh to travel to Singapore from January 16 to January 31 to attend a polytechnic function there.

The bank, which directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to return his passport for that purpose, also directed Ghosh to return the passport to the Central Bureau immediately upon returning from Singapore. At the same time, it asked him to submit a personal bond of Rs 5,00,000.

After spending more than two years behind bars following his alleged connection to the Saradha chit fund scam and currently out on bail in 2016, Ghosh approached the divisional bank on January 2 seeking permission to travel to Singapore.

There were initially restrictions on him traveling out of state. However, these were later relaxed and the restriction applied to travel abroad.

However, on Tuesday, CBI counsel objected to Ghosh’s overseas travels, claiming that since Ghosh is one of the main defendants in the Saradha Ponzi scam under investigation by the central agency, he should not be allowed to go to to travel abroad.

“The CBI has identified some transactional links with some foreign banks in the Saradha scam. Some of these foreign banks are also based in Singapore,” the CBI lawyer argued. However, the divisional bank ultimately did not accept the CBI lawyer’s argument and allowed Ghosh to travel abroad.
