Calcutta High Court lawyer Sanatan Ray Chowdhury, who was arrested by the Kolkata Police on 6 July, revealed during police interrogation that he had participated in the 10th BRICS Summit in Johannesburg in 2018. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was present at the summit.
Chowdhury was arrested over allegations of forgery, impersonation of a public servant and criminal conspiracy with others for land and a building under the Gariahat Police Station.
He allegedly posed as a CBI Special Counsel on social media. Chowdhury used to travel in a car with a blue beacon and identify himself as the standing counsel of the West Bengal government.
He posted other details on social media which are contradictory and being verified.
Chowdhury’s arrest comes after fake IAS officer Debanjan Deb was arrested in connection with the dubious vaccine camps case in Kolkata.
A special investigation team (SIT) of the Kolkata Police is currently probing the matter and nine people, including prime accused Debanjan Deb, have been arrested so far.
The accused used to travel in a car with a blue beacon and identified himself as the Standing Counsel of the West Bengal Government.
This comes after fake IAS officer Debanjan Deb was arrested in connection with the dubious vaccine camps case in Kolkata.
The police said that the man had duped several thousand rupees from an elderly woman 15 years back promising her of a job.
Incidentally, the person got arrested after he tried to sell a 10 crore rupees property in south Kolkata by faking documents.
“The owners of the house after suspecting the person had on June 30 filed a complaint at Gariahat Police Station and on 6 July Sanatan was arrested from his residence in North Kolkata,” said police sources.
It is pertinent to mention that apart from a blue beacon on top of his car, Sanatan also pasted ‘CBI’ and ‘Advocate’ stickers on his car.
Meanwhile, a woman Radharani who faked herself as a CID officer has been absconding from Krishnanagar after it was proven that she is a fake CID.
