Earlier on Friday, ED claimed that Rs 21 crore 90 lakh was recovered from Arpita's Tollygunge flat. That is, 49.8 crore rupees in all. Now the question is, is he really have so much money? Although this money was recovered from his 'Intimate Friend's' house, Arpita claims that all the money found belongs to Partha. But ED has not revealed anything yet.
According to sources, Arpita made such a claim to the ED officials during the interrogation. She also claimed that she did not know how much money was kept in his house.
