SSC scam fund has gone into several businesses in India and Bangladesh


Following the latest arrest of Prasanna Kumar Roy, nephew of Partha Chatterjee in connection with a teacher recruitment scam which is known as SSC scam, a large number of individuals in India and Bangladesh must be in gravest tension as now the Pandora Box would get opened.

Partha Chaterjee’s involvement in stone business

Back in August 2006, Salauddin Ahmed, Junior Communications Minister and a leader of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) announced that a new bridge crossing a river in the south of the country was to be named Hezbollah. Justifying the naming of the bridge, Salauddin Ahmed, state minister for communication told the French news agency, AFP “I named the bridge Hezbollah because of our love for the Lebanese resistance group”.

“Hezbollah is the only group which is fighting Israel and the bridge is named after the group as a mark of honor”, he added.

Salauddin Ahmed is living in India since 2016 as he fled Bangladesh and illegally entered India. He had been running business of stones, mostly by buying from northeastern part of India and selling it to various construction projects in Bangladesh. According to a credible source, Partha Chatterjee has invested at least IRS 15 million in stone business with Salauddin Ahmed through Prasanna Kumar Roy.

Partha Chaterjee’s involvement in ship-breaking and scrap business

Back in 2015 Prasanna Kumar Roy was introduced to a Bangladeshi national named Shipan Kumer Basu, who fled Bangladesh when several criminal charges were brought against him for his connections with Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and secret conspiracy of unseating Awami League government. Subsequently, as Roy’s relations with Basu became deeper and they became intimate friends, Prasanna Kumar Roy sought Shipan Kumer Basu’s help in investing in textile business in Bangladesh. Later Shipan Kumer Basu contacted imprisoned BNP leader Aslam Chowdhury seeking his help in investing in textile business. Hearing details from Shipan Kumer Basu, Aslam Chowdhury suggested him to invest in textile, ship-breaking and iron scrap business as well as buying properties. It may be mentioned here that, Aslam Chowdhury has been in ship-breaking and iron scrap business for decades.

A representative of Aslam Chowdhury visited Kolkata and held meeting with Shipan Kumer Basu and later another meeting was arranged by Basu between Chowdhury’s representative and Prasanna Kumar Roy. Following series of meetings, Aslam Chowdhury’s representative was introduced by Prasanna Kumar Roy with his uncle Partha Chatterjee and later it was decided that several millions of Indian rupees would be invested in textile, iron-scrap, ship-breaking businesses in Bangladesh alongside buying of properties. Shipan Kumer Basu was assigned to supervise the investment and it was decided that Partha Chatterjee and Prasanna Kumar Roy would receive 6 percent profit every month against the investment. Out of this six percent, Shipan would get 1 percent for his services.

As the business continue to run smoothly, Partha Chaterjee had asked Prasanna Kumar Roy to buy properties in Bangladesh, where Monalisa Das was assigned to regularly visit Bangladesh under the disguise of actress and supervise the purchased properties. Partha Chatterjee’s mistress Arpita Mukherjee was aware of investments of Chaterjee in Bangladesh.

Subsequently, Shipan Kumer Basu proposed Prasanna Kumar Roy to begin illegal money-laundering (hawala or hundi) between Bangladesh, India and Dubai. As the offer sounded lucrative, Prasanna Kumar Roy instantly agreed to this new venture. At this stage, Shipan Kumer Basu secretly visited Bangladesh and met some locals and finally appointed at least three agents to handle the hawala business.

It may be mentioned here that, before fleeing Bangladesh, Shipan Kumer Basu was merely a pauper, who had surprisingly turned into a millionaire just within the span of few months. He also was travelling to Dubai, Israel and other foreign countries leading large teams, while Prasanna Kumar Roy and Israeli-American Druze Mendi N Safadi was always included in those entourages.

It is also learnt from credible sources that Shipan Kumer Basu was supplying young girls from his ancestral Khulna district in Bangladesh to Prasanna Kumar Roy, Partha Chatterjee and few other influential figures in the Trinamool Congress. Although Basu was having multiple financial relations with people connected with Trinamool Congress, he was openly proclaiming himself as a leader of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Suspicious activities of Shipan Kumer Basu

According to a report in Indian TV channel TV9Bangla, a new name has surfaced in this massive bribery scandals. The report claims, a billionaire named Prasanna Kumar Roy who is a nephew of Partha Chatterjee is also connected to this scam. Prasanna Kumar Roy is the Chief Financial Advisor of an organization named World Hindu Struggle Committee. According to the website information, leader of BNP, Aslam Chowdhury is an advisor of this organization. Other advisors of this organization are: Mendi N Safadi, Frank Creyelman, Dragana Trifkovic, Stephan Tchernetich, Hereditary Prince of Montenegro, Serbia and Albania, Noor Dahri, Lady Erika Morales Cruz, MA Monayem (from Bangladesh), Manel Salmi, Ishkhan Rasoev and others.

When this newspaper contacted each of the individuals shown as the advisors of ‘World Hindu Struggle Committee’, most of them expressed utter surprise as they even had never heard any such name. Those who are proved to be involved with this dubious organization are Mendi N Safadi, Aslam Chowdhury and Prasanna Kumar Roy. Following publication of the TV9Bangla report, a shrewd Shipan Kumer Basu, who actually runs this dubious venture has though hurriedly removed the name of Prasanna Kumar Roy from the website of World Hindu Struggle Committee and his posts on Facebook about his connections with Prasanna Kumar Roy evidence of connections between Shipan Kumer Basu and Prasanna Kumar Roy still remains live in an a report on website named The News.

According to the website, office of World Hindu Struggle Committee is situated at: 66, Ideal Villas, DA block, Action Area, Newtown, Kolkata- 700156, West Bengal, India. Contact numbers are: +91 95641 86761, +033 4603 0066, Cell: +91 98749 78846, Cell: +91 91238 00434. But in reality there is no such office in this address.

Culprit Shipan Kumer Basu tries to hide in bush

Following arrest of Prasanna Kumar Roy on charges of his involvement in SSC scam, a culprit Shipan Kumer Basu in a Facebook post said: “Prasanna Kumar Roy has been relieved of all posts in the World Hindu Struggle Committee”. Shipan Kumer Basu has also deleted all his previous posts with Prasanna Kumar Roy along with lots of photographs.

It is anticipated that Shipan Kumer Basu and his wife may now go into hiding or they may even flee India and go to any third country fearing arrest and legal consequences for their direct involvement with the SSC scam fund.
