Kolkata: Suspended Trinamool Congress (TMC) Kunal Ghosh, who is in custody in the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scam, on Wednesday said Mamata Banerjee should be removed from the post of West Bengal Chief Minister.

"All those who are accused in the Saradha chit fund case should resign and face probe and that includes CM as well," Kunal Ghosh said.

He further said till their names are cleared of charges, Subrata Mukherjee should be the caretaker chief minister.

Earlier in the day, Ghosh was dragged out of a police van and taken into the court after he refused to get out of the vehicle. The suspended TMC leader has been demanding better treatment in custody.

Ghosh has been demanding the same treatment that is allegedly accorded to West Bengal Transport Minister Madan Mitra who was also arrested in the scam. Ghosh alleged that the transport minister is brought to court in separate car and is also allowed to talk over phone.

The TMC leader earlier in November 2014 had allegedly tried to commit suicide in the Presidency Correctional Home and was admitted to state-run SSKM Hospital in Kolkata.
