Kolkata, Feb.7 (ANI): Jailed Communist Party of India (CPI-M) leader Sushanto Ghosh, was released from the Alipore Central Jail here on Tuesday, six months after he was arrested on a charge of seven skeletons being recovered from near his ancestral house in West Midnapore.
Ghosh was welcomed and garlanded by CPI(M) cadres. They chanted slogans once he was released.
The Supreme Court had granted Ghosh interim bail last week.
He had been in custody since August 11 last year after his arrest by the state Criminal Investigation Department for his alleged complicity in the murder of Ajay Acharya, whose son filed a case following the discovery of his skeleton from a pit.
DNA tests oof the seven skeletons proved that one of the skeletons was that of Acharya. In the case, Shyamal Acharya named Ghosh as one of the key accused.
He alleged that his father had been murdered along with the other six, all Trinamool Congress supporters, in September 2002 and their bodies were buried.
Ghosh has maintained that it is a politically-motivated case and was filed after a change in the government in the State. (ANI)
