Abhishek Banerjee was receiving Rs 35 crore every month via syndicate racket, claims alleged audio tape

In a major development that could call trouble for the Trinamool Congress (TMC) in the middle of Bengal assembly elections, 3 audio tapes have surfaced in relation to the coal smuggling case and money was being received (up to Rs 35 crore) by Mamata Banerjee's nephew Abhishek Banerjee every month as part of cut money via a syndicate racket. In the alleged audio tapes, a conversation between Ganesh Bagadiya, who is said to be a close aide of one Anup Majhi — an accused in the coal smuggling case — and a government official is claimed to be heard.
