The police have slapped sections – 406 and 420 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) against the woman.

The Kotwali police arrested her from her lair at Baigacha in Santipur yesterday afternoon. Number of arrests in the fake government job racket case now stands at two.

The Kotwali police on Wednesday produced Rafique Mondol, driver of Radharani Biswas, before the Chief Judicial Magistrate (CJM) court in Krishnagar where the magistrate on hearing pleas remanded him in police custody for two days.

During interrogation, Rafique has reportedly conceded before the Kotwali police that he had collected money from several youths at different times on behalf of Biswas.

The driver has allegedly conceded that the money was taken from the youths on the false promise of government jobs.

The accused woman reportedly extorted lakhs of rupees from several youths living across the district by promising them government jobs.

More interestingly, the woman was seen at several charitable programmes during pandemic situation where several Trinamul Congress leaders were present.

The incident triggered a political storm in Krishnagar where many Trinamul Congress leaders including minister are alleged involved, sources said.

Local people said the incident is similar to the case of Debanjan Deb, who posed as an IAS officer and ran fake vaccination camps in Kolkata. Debanjan had reportedly made influence with several Trinamul Congress top brasses and shared photographs of them in his social media platforms.

In this case, Radharani Biswas also made influence with Trinamul Congress leaders and shared a common platform with the leaders in charitable programmes during Covid times. She also used a costly SUV vehicle.
