Kolkata: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday arrested Lok Sabha MP and leader of Trinamool Congress parliamentary party Sudip Bandyopadhyay on Tuesday after he was questioned in connection with the Rose Valley chit fund scam at CBI's office in Kolkata.

This is the first time that he would be grilled in the matter soon after another party MP Tapas Pal was sent to police custody in the case.

When asked, Bandyopadhyay told waiting reporters in Kolkata, "I said I will come to face CBI interrogation to know what is against me".

He also alleged political vendetta against him and the Trinamool Congress party by the NDA-ruled Central government.

Rose Valley scam, which was also being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate, encompasses a larger amount of money swindling as compared to the Saradha case.
