Trinamool MP Nusrat Jahan appears before Enforcement Directorate in fraud case

Trinamool Congress’s (TMC) Basirhat MP and Bengali film actress Nusrat Jahan on Tuesday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for questioning in a case of alleged flat-selling fraud by a real estate company, of which she was a director till 2017.

The TMC MP reached the ED’s office in Kolkata at 10.43 am with the necessary documents. Her attendance came after the ED asked her to appear before the agency at its office in Kolkata on September 12.

Before going to the ED office, the Bengali film actress told the media that she would extend her full cooperation with the agency in the case.


The Enforcement Directorate registered a case against Jahan after a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, Shankudeb Panda, filed a complaint alleging that the Trinamool Congress MP duped people of Rs 5.5 lakh each from 429 people promising them apartments at Rajarhaton.

As per the complaint, Nusrat Jahan was the director of a real estate firm, Seven Sense International, which took money from 429 employees of the Indian Overseas Bank, promising 1,000 square feet apartments on the outskirts of Kolkata.

Panda claimed that neither did they get a flat nor did they get the money back so far.

However, refuting the allegations, Jahan earlier said that she had resigned from the company in 2017.

A case was also filed in Alipore court in Kolkata against Nusrat Jahan and others for cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property, criminal breach of trust and acts by several people with common intention.
