BJP is defamed as the primary accused Chandana Chowdhury, earlier arrested in the case, has revealed the connections of BJP leaders, Juhi Chowdhury, Kailash Vijayvargia and Roopa Ganguly in the Kolkata child trafficking case

 The Kolkata child trafficking racket that created sensations over a week has revealed the links of three big Bharatiya Janata Party leaders.

The key accused Chandana Chakraborty, the chairperson of Bimala Sishu Griho, a child adoption centre in Jalpaiguri, has named Juhi Chowdhury, a BJP leader in the trafficking case before being presented in the court on Tuesday. She pleaded innocent in the whole matter, shifting the blame on the BJP leader’s shoulders. “Juhi Chowdhury is involved with the adoption centre for the last three years. If something wrong or immoral was done, it was done by her. Why am I being victimised? I am not the culprit,” she said.

Chandana Chakraborty along with some of the members of her organisation was arrested for selling at least 17 children. The racket was busted last week by CBI. Juhi Chowdhury who fled the scene right after her name was linked with the racket, was found in Darjeeling district on Monday night.

Ms Chakraborty also added that when she went to Delhi with Juhi to seek help for running the child adoption centre, it was the latter who consulted Roopa Ganguly and Kailash Vijayvargiya. She adds, “I haven’t talked to anyone, Juhi did. She might have talked to (BJP leaders) Roopa Ganguly and Kailash Vijayvargiya. I was sitting in a separate room. We are innocent. We will definitely help in the investigation.”

BJP has sternly denied the involvements of any of their party members as was alleged by Ms Chakraborty. It also said that Juhi Chowdhury was victimised and that it was all a conspiracy against them plotted by Trinamool Congress. Kailash Vijayvargia, BJP National General Secretary, says that he was being targeted by the police which is controlled by Trinamool Congress.
