CAF CC: Enugu Rangers Fall to Étoile du Sahel At ‘The Cathedral’

first_imgNigeria Professional League side Enugu Rangers International FC, Nigeria’s sole representative at the 2019 CAF Confederation Cup lost the second leg of their Group B encounter against Étoile du Sahel at ‘The Cathedral’, Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, Enugu.Rangers were looking to take revenge on L’Étoile after they lost 2-0 away in the first leg last week, however, it was the Tunisian side that got the better of the hosts with goals from Maher Hannechi and Iheb Msakni which secured another 2-0 victory for them.The Flying Antelopes looked like they were taking the bull by its horns until they were stunned in the 19th minute by Maher Hannechi who couldn’t be stopped by two Rangers’ defenders.The home team decided to put a little pressure on their visitors with displays from Bright Silas and Kelvin Itoya, who missed an opportunity to bring parity to the game after a failed bicycle kick attempt in the 40th minute.L’Étoile were not resting on their oars as they wanted to silence the home side. And their pressure paid off when goal scorer Maher Hannechi was adjudged to have been brought down in the box by Isaac Louté. Iheb Msakni stepped up to take the spot-kick which he converted with a beautiful panenka.Rangers have now lost two matches in a row to L’Étoile, who ended their unbeaten run in the tournament, leaving them in third with four points in their group.While the loss has stifled their chances of qualifying to the next round, The Flying Antelopes will look to win their remaining matches away at Salitas and at home against CS Sfaxien in order to keep their continental dreams alive.Relatedlast_img read more

CBI chargesheet: Kunal Ghosh supported Saradha’s business

first_imgTrinamool leader Madan MitraIt has been known for long. And now the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) chargesheet in the Saradha scam has confirmed the nexus between the ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal and the chitfund group.The chargesheet has revealed how a media house, Pratidin Prakashani, was used to promote the deposit collection business of the Saradha Group. The media house, which had Trinamool leader Srinjoy Bose as one of its editors, managed the editorial content of a television channel. Through the television channel, Saradha Group showed that its deposit collection business had Pratidin’s backing. A prominent Trinamool leader appeared in a television programme to promote the Saradha Group as well.Loot businessThe chargesheet, a copy of which is in possession of MAIL TODAY, also revealed that Trinamool leader and West Bengal Sports Minister Madan Mitra, along with Bose and suspended Trinamool MP Kunal Ghosh, abetted the loot of investors’ money by Saradha Group. The second supplementary chargesheet, which was filed in February, said both Bose and Ghosh had clear knowledge about Saradha’s actual business.The probe revealed that in June 2010, when reports started emerging about illegal chitfund companies in the state, a meeting between Trinamool leaders Bose and Ghosh, and Saradha kingpin Sudipta Sen was held. Following the meeting, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on September 8 of 2010 between Bengal Media Pvt Ltd and Pratidin Prakashani Private Ltd. Bose was the editor of the newspaper Sangbad Pratidin of the Pratidin Prakashani.As per the MoU, both the parties agreed to run Channel 10 jointly, wherein the editorial content of the television channel was the responsibility of Pratidin. “Thus the main source of funding in compliance to the conditions of the agreement with Pratidin House was from M/S Saradha Chargesheet reveals TMC-Saradha nexus SANDEEP ADHWARYU Realty India Ltd, which was raising deposits from public illegally through various investment schemes under the garb of selling products and services?” the chargesheet said.advertisement”Investigation further disclosed that Channel 10 used to provide support to the deposit collection business of the Saradha Group by creating an impression about the sound business of the group. The channel was also used to counterbalance any adverse publicity against illegal deposit collection business of Saradha Group,” it pointed out.The chargesheet added that in one such programme, aired on Channel 10, Kunal Ghosh had appeared and very strongly supported the business of Saradha Group. “It would be pertinent to mention here that Kunal Ghosh was appointed CEO by Channel 10 with manifold increase in his salary? The circumstances above support the contention that the whole arrangement between Pratidin and Saradha Group was ill-designed?” the chargesheet added.Referring to Madan Mitra, the chargesheet says: “During 2009 Madan Mitra was invited by Sudipta Sen to his Saradha Garden project where Mitra visited and addressed a gathering? in his speech Mitra praised Sudipta Sen for bringing employment opportunity for the youth. He praised expansion of business of the Saradha Group and assured his support.”last_img read more
