All of them were on a vehicle and were going towards East Midnapore. Late on Saturday evening, his car was stopped near Ranihati Mor under Panchla police station and search of the vehicle started. It is being told that a huge amount of cash was kept in the vehicle. On receiving information about the incident, Superintendent of Police Swati Bhangalia reached the spot.

Inside the car were three Congress MLAs from Jamtara Rajesh Kachhap, Naman Vicksal and Irfan Ansari. Unaccounted cash was found inside the car.

The Trinamool Congress has targeted the Center over this incident. TMC said that the central government is selectively targeting the parties with the help of investigative agencies.

On the other hand, Jharkhand Congress working president Bandhu Tirkey said that it looks like a conspiracy of BJP. The BJP has been trying to destabilize the Hemant Soren government ever since it came to power. If we see in Maharashtra and some other states, it will be clear that BJP uses money. She just wants to come to power. I would like to request the party high command to take strict action against these three MLAs so that a strong message can be sent to the other members of the party.
