Mamata blames 'pressure' by Centre for Tapas Paul's death

Feb 19, 2020 14:46 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday alleged that "pressure" created by central agencies and "vendetta politics" led to the death of Trinamool Congress leader and actor Tapas Paul. Paul, a two-term former MP, died at the age of 61 in Mumbai on Tuesday after a heart attack. He was an accused in the Rose Valley chit fund scam case and was in jail for over a year. Banerjee, while paying homage to Paul, also alleged that another TMC leader Sultan Ahmed had also died of cardiac arrest as he was under stress after being named an accused in the Narada tapes scandal of 2017.
