Before this, the judicial custody of both has been increased twice. Parth’s bail application has been filed several times in the court. But the ED has opposed Parth’s bail. Even today, the City Sessions Court sent both to judicial custody.

Former Bengal minister Partha Chatterjee and his aide Arpita Mukherjee were sent to 14-day judicial custody on August 5.
