The arrest of West Bengal BJP Mahila Morch leader Juhi Chowdhury in connection with a child trafficking case has now opened a Pandora’s box of trouble for the BJP. Juhi was arrested from Batasi along the India-Nepal border while Chandana Chakraborty, the main accused, alleged she was introduced to BJP leaders Kailash Vijayvargiya and Roopa Ganguly through Chowdhury.
Roopa Ganguly, meanwhile, refuted the allegations of her involvement in the child trafficking scam calling them “baseless, fabricated and malicious”.
She also said she is “ready to sue the Mamta Banerjee government”.
The BJP also said that the arrests are part of a larger conspiracy by the TMC to defame its leaders.
The CID had blew the lid off the child trafficking racket, conducting raids in homes and nursing homes in Baduria of North 24 Parganas district, in Behala and some other parts of south Bengal since November last year.
