TEACHER SCAM

West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) President, Dr Kalyanmoy Gangopadhyay, whose name has figured in the recent West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC) recruitment scam, was removed from his post on Thursday.

Kolkata, June 23, 2022: West Bengal Board of Secondary Education (WBBSE) President, Dr Kalyanmoy Gangopadhyay, whose name has figured in the recent West Bengal School Service Commission (WBSSC) recruitment scam, was removed from his post on Thursday.

Instead of extending the terms of Gangopadhyay, the Mamata Banerejee government replaced him with Dr Ramanuj Ganguly, a professor with Barasat State University in North 24 Parganas.

Gangopadhyay, as the WBBSE Chairman, was a member of the advisory committee of WBSSC, which is perceived to have played a key role in the recruitment scam. He is among the five persons against whom the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team, investigating the scam, had filed FIRs.

He was also questioned by the CBI in this matter. On June 16, a six-member CBI team went to Gangopadhyay’s residence and questioned him on the recruitment irregularities. CBI sources said that the agency wanted to know if Gangopadhyay was aware of any politically influential person influencing the recruitment process in the WBSSC.

Later, the CBI team took Gangopadhyay to the WBBSE office in Salt Lake and conducted another round of inquiry there.

The CBI sleuths then conducted a search at the WBBSE office and seized a number of documents and hard disks. They also questioned the staff and officials present at the WBBSE office.
