In its report submitted to the court, the ED maintained that they have derived at the estimated scam amount to be around Rs 200 crore from the confessions made by Shil in face of interrogation on this count as well as from the contents of different paper and digital documents recovered from his residence.

The central probe body has also named a number of municipalities where the purported scam had taken place and the majority of these urban civic bodies are from the North 24 Parganas and South 24 Parganas districts.

Without naming anyone, the report mentioned about involvement of influential persons from the political and bureaucracy circles behind the scam, the sources said.On Friday, the Calcutta High Court's single-judge bench of Justice Abhijit Gangopadhyay directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to conduct a separate probe on the municipalities recruitment scam.

While passing this direction, Justice Gangopadhyay said that, if necessary, the central agency can start its investigation by filing a separate FIR.He also directed the CBI to submit a preliminary report in this matter on April 28.
