Kolkata: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mukul Roy’s brother-in-law has been arrested from Delhi for allegedly taking money from people on the pretext of getting them jobs in the Indian Railways, police here said on Saturday.

Roy, however, described the arrest as a “political conspiracy” against him and his party.

“Srijan Roy, brother-in-law of Mukul Roy, was arrested from Delhi on Friday night for his allegedly cheating people on the pretext of providing them jobs and taking money from them,” an officer at Bizpore Police Station said.

The accused was produced at a district court on Saturday and was remanded to 12 days of police custody, the officer added.

“It is part of a conspiracy against me, my family members and my party to stop me,” Mukul Roy told reporters here.

The BJP leader also said that the case in question was lodged in 2012 during his tenure as the Union Railway Minister, when he was also the Trinamool Congress’ General Secretary.

“The case was lodged in 2012 and such things (arrest of Srijan Roy) are happening ahead of Panchayat polls. I will fight such conspiracies politically,” he said.
