At least ₹20 crore in cash along with other items were recovered from the residence of a woman, who apparently happens to be a close associate of Chatterjee, the industries minister who earlier held the education portfolio.

Speaking to reporters, TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh said that the party has no connection with the woman from whose possession huge amount of cash was recovered.

"The party demands time-bound investigation in the case," he said, maintaining that investigation by central agencies in some cases have been going on for many years.

The CBI has been investigating the multi-crore Saradha chit fund case since 2014, while the Narada tapes case, which unfolded ahead of 2016 elections, was also yet to reach any conclusion.

"Law will take its own course; the Trinamool Congress will not interfere, however big a leader gets involved in it," Ghosh said.
