Enforcement Directorate Conducts Fresh Raids At Trinamool Congress Leader Shahjahan Sheikh’s House Again

Trinamool Congress leader Shahjahan Sheikh has been missing.


Nineteen days after an Enforcement Directorate team was assaulted by a mob, ED sleuths again conducted a raid at the residence of absconding TMC leader Shahjahan Sheikh in North 24 Parganas district on Wednesday morning in connection with its probe into the alleged multi-crore ration distribution scam, an officer said.

Accompanied by over 120 personnel of the central armed police force, the Enforcement Directorate officers broke open the collapsible gate of the residence of Sheikh in Sandeshkhali area in the presence of local police and two locals as witnesses, the officer said.

“We will search Sheikh’s house today. We will also try to talk to the residents there”, the Enforcement Directorate officer told PTI.

After entering the house, the Enforcement Directorate officers locked the gates from inside and started searches, he added.

On January 5, a team of Enforcement Directorate officers were assaulted by a mob when they tried to enter the residence of the TMC leader.

Three officers were injured in the attack. The district police and Sheikh’s family members had lodged a complaint against the Enforcement Directorate officers.

Sheikh, however, is absconding till date.
