Bengal BJP Vice President sent to three days police custody

Kolkata, Jan 15 (IANS) A court here on Sunday sent to, three days police custody, BJP’s West Bengal unit Vice President Jayprakash Majumdar, arrested for allegedly taking money from School Service Commission candidates on the pretext of getting them jobs.

The judge at Bidhannagar court also rejected a bail plea moved by the defence counsel.

Majumdar was arrested on Saturday after seven hours of intense grilling at the Bidhannagar North police station following a complaint by Arup Ratan Roy.
