Ponzi scam: Sudipta Sen's close aide arrested
A close aide of ponzi scam tainted Saradha group chief Sudipta Sen, was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation from the bustling Sealdah station here on Tuesday, an agency official said.
 
Arindam Das, alias Bumba, was alleged to be mentoring the "illegal" operations of the Saradha group in the South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal, a CBI spokesman said.
 
Das was earlier arrested in mid 2013 when the ponzi farm scam came to light, but got bail after a month.
 
He had gone into hiding since August 2014 after CBI had called him for examination.
 
Later in the day, Das was presented in court, which sent him to CBI custody for seven days.

Bihar: Protesting Home Guards halt trains, block roads
Thousands of protesting Home Guard personnel in Bihar forcibly halted dozens of trains and blocked major roads on Wednesday to protest the state government's failure to fulfil their demands.
 
The Home Guards have been protesting to press the Bihar government into meeting their demands which include a pay hike and insurance cover.
 
"Trains were halted at Patna, Darbhanga, Bhagalpur, Jehanabad, Munger, Jamui, Ara, Gaya, Supaul and other railway stations by the protestors to enforce their 'chakka jam' today (May 20)," a police official said.
 
Roads, including National Highways 83, 110 and 98, were also blocked.
 
Bihar Homeguards Volunteers Association leader Sidheshwar Prasad told media here that they would intensify their protest from Thursday and launch "jail bharo andolan". 
 
"Our successful chakka jam will be followed by jail bharo andolan," he said. Last week, over 70,000 Home Guard personnel in Bihar began an indefinite strike. 
 
The home guards are demanding increase in pay, accidental coverage during duty and post-retirement benefits from the Bihar government.
 
Association president Arun Kumar Thakur said they will not end their stir until the government fulfils their demands.
 
The home guard personnel have been petitioning the state government for the last few years to fulfill their demands.
 
According to state home department officials, the Home Guard personnel are deployed for traffic regulation, in banks, jail and police stations and at residences.
