Midnapore: Former CPI (M) minister Susanta Ghosh, a key accused in a case of murder, was arrested on Thursday by the CID after a local court rejected his anticipatory bail.

Chief Judicial Magistrate (Midnapore), Manoj Rai dismissed the conditional bail granted by the court on July 26 to Ghosh, the former Paschim Anchal Unnayan Affairs minister.

The bail was rejected by the magistrate after a report by the CID that the DNA of two out of seven skeletons dug up from near the former minister's residence matched those of the two missing Trinamool Congress supporters, Ajoy Acharya and Raju Sinha.

The magistrate remanded Ghosh to CID custody for seven days.

The interrogation of the former minister, who would be taken to Kolkata, would begin on Thursday night, police said.

Seven skeletons were dug up from near Ghosh's ancestral house at Benachapra in the Garbeta police station area in West Midnapore district on June 2.

An FIR had been filed against the former minister on June 4 at the Anandpur police station after Ajoy Acharya's son claimed that he had recognised his father from the clothes on one of the skeletons.
