Bhubaneswar: A Special CBI court here has allowed Trinamul Congress (TMC) Lok Sabha member Sudip Bandyopadhyay, accused in the Rose Valley chit fund scam, to go abroad for his official UN General Assembly tour.
The court allowed Mr Bandyopadhyay to go abroad following the Odisha high court’s order to the lower court to consider the TMC MP’s passport issue for his official UNO General Assembly visit.
The court permitted the TMC leader, who appeared before the court here on Saturday, to use his surrendered passport for the purpose of foreign visit. It allowed him to leave India for abroad from October 27 to November 1 and resubmit the passport with the court positively on November 8.
The TMC MP was arrested by the CBI sleuths from Kolkata in January this year for his alleged involvement with the `17,000 crore Rose Valley chit fund scam, which is being probed by the agency under the Supreme Court’s directions. Mr Bandyopadhyay is currently out on bail granted by the Odisha High Court on health grounds.
