Summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the SSC scam, Tapas Mandal arrived at the CGO complex on Tuesday at around 10:10 am. It is a possibility that Tapas and TMC youth leader Kuntal Ghosh will be interrogated face-to-face. Kuntal has claimed that the scam is all Tapas Mandal's game. Gopal Dalpati was also named by Kuntal, who is in ED's custody.

Based on Kuntal's allegation, Tapas Mandal was issued a summon notice on Monday. While entering the ED office, Tapas Mandal spoke to the media persons and said, "I never stayed at Kuntal Ghosh's flat, Niladri used to come to me." When asked whether he asked for money from Kuntal, he said, "Of course, I will ask for money, it is the money given to him by job seekers".

Kuntal Ghosh alleged that he had been framed by a man identified as Niladri Ghosh, who is allegedly close to Tapas Mandal. Mandal was close to the former Chairman of the West Bengal Board of Primary Education (WBBPE) Manik Bhattacharya. Kuntal claimed that Mandal had demanded money from him.
