Five including three Jharkhand MLAs caught in Bengal cash haul to be produced in court today

The three Jharkhand Congress MLAs who were taken into custody with cash worth around 59 lakh rupees from the district one day earlier were given a 10-day police remand on Sunday by a Howrah district court.

Before being shown in court, the three MLAs Irfan Ansari, Rajesh Kachchap, and Naman Bixal Kongari were first brought for a medical examination. Following their interrogation during the previous night, they were officially detained hours ago.

According to the police, the court rejected the MLAs’ request for bail and took into account their request for remand.

“All five accused were produced in court. After hearing both sides, the court rejected the bail plea, and our prayer for 10 days of police remand was considered. CID has taken over the probe,” said Taragati Ghatak, Public Prosecutor on Jharkhand MLAs’ cash seizure case.
