Enforcement Directorate (ED) will question the wife and son of Trinamool Congress MLA and the former president of West Bengal Board of Primary Education (WBBPE) Manik Bhattacharya as part of the ongoing probe into the multi-crore teachers' recruitment irregularities scam in the state.

According to ED sources, Bhattacharya's son Souvik Bhattacharya has already been summoned to the probe agency's office in Kolkata next week. A similar summons will be issued to his spouse calling her for questioning next week.

However, the central agency wants to question the son and the spouse for two different reasons. Souvik Bhattacharya will be questioned in connection to an agreement of his agency of Rs 2.64 crore with All India Teachers' Training Achievers Association, an umbrella organization of different private teachers' training colleges in the state.

On the other hand, Bhattacharya's wife, Satarupa Bhattacharya would be questioned in connection with a bank account with deposits worth Rs 2.97 crores which she held jointly with a deceased person, Mrityunjoy Chakraborty
