“The money belonged to the BJP and was to be used in the elections,” Shaw told reporters in Asansol on Monday morning, as per a Hindustan Times report.

The Hindustan Times report mentioned that Chatterjee, a North 24-Parganas district resident, was mostly based in Ghosh’s constituency in Kharagpur Sadar and was always seen with him. Shaw came to Bengal from Delhi to take part in BJP’s ‘Save Bengal’ campaign. Chatterjee had served as Ghosh’s personal assistant.

Speaking to reporters, Ghosh admitted that Chatterjee is a BJP worker, but added that he doesn’t work with him now. “He (Gautam Chatterjee) used to work with me but now he is engaged in other work. He is still with us but not directly working with me. However, we are in touch. I had no contact with him yesterday and will have to inquire about the incident to know what exactly happened, whose money it was and where was it going.”
