Debanjan Deb’s security guard held
The personal security guard of Debanjan Deb, the prime accused in the fake vaccination camp case, was arrested late on Thursday from his Sonarpur home.
Police said Arvind Baidya, a retired paramilitary jawan, was privy to Deb’s crimes and was instrumental in organising a fake vaccination camp in Sonarpur.
Baidya’s family members said he was being framed.
Baidya has been remanded in police custody till July 5.
On Thursday, Baidya's name featured in a political debate when TMC MP Sukhendu Sekhar Roy showed purported photographs of him at a function in Raj Bhavan in the presence of governor Jagdeep Dhankhar.
The BJP said it was an attempt to malign the governor.
