Fake vaccine racket mastermind’s photos with Trinamool brass go viral

Deb, the fake IAS officer who conducted a dubious vaccine camp in Kolkata and duped MP Mimi Chakraborty, has links with the AITC top brass

Debanjan Deb, the fake officer who conducted a dubious vaccine camp in Kolkata and duped Trinamool Congress (AITC) MP Mimi Chakraborty among others, has been found to have links with top politicians of the ruling AITC in Bengal.

Photographs of Deb’s hobnobbing with the top politicians of Trinamool Congress are now doing the rounds on social media, prompting opposition BJP to launch an attack on the party.

Deb, who has been arrested by Kolkata Police, had posted various photographs with senior ministers, including Firhad Hakim, Subrata Mukherjee and others on his Twitter handle.

Apart from Hakim and Mukherjee, IMA president Dr Shantanu Sen and Avishek Dalmiya, president of Cricket Association of Bengal, have also been spotted in some of the photos that Debanjan Deb had uploaded on social media.

As the photos went viral, BJP was quick to attack the AITC government, questioning the presence of several politicians with Deb. BJP MP Saumitra Khan also demanded a probe by the central agencies.

Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta said in a tweet, “More details of the fake IAS & fake vaccination scandal in Kolkata awaited. Prima facie, it suggests that a picture of @MamataOfficial and display of Trinammol colours secures a blank cheque to do just about anything in W Bengal. This now includes selling coupons for free vaccines.”

“How the vaccine is available in the open market? Trinamool MP and MLA are involved in this case. This is being done in their presence. If this case is investigated by the central agency, the correct information will come out,” wrote Saumitra Khan on Twitter.

Shantanu Sen, ex-president of IMA and AITC Rajya Sabha MP, whose photograph with Deb is being circulated, rebutted the claims.

Dr Sen said that during the first wave of Covid-19, many organisations and individuals voluntarily donated masks, sanitisers, gloves, PPE kits to the Indian Medical Association for distribution amongst hospitals, doctors and other institutions.

“This man might have been one of those who came individually or with others, introducing himself as a social worker and not an IAS,” Sen said.

“Moreover, as a public representative, we often come across many unknown people at many places who take photographs with us, even sometimes without informing us,” said Dr Sen.

The fake vaccine row

Deb did his schooling at the Taki House in Sealdah and Charu Chandra College. He started a course on Genetics from Calcutta University but dropped out.

He later joined a distant education programme at Vidyasagar University, but left that midway. As per police sources, Deb has claimed that he started making music albums as well.

The police arrested 28-year-old Deb on Wednesday for allegedly posing as an officer and organising a Covid-19 vaccination camp in the Kasba neighbourhood, where actor and Trinamool Congress MP Mimi Chakraborty had also got her jab.

Chakraborty, who was invited to attend the camp, said she became suspicious about the vaccination process as she did not receive the customary that is sent to people after they are administered a dose, and informed the police.
