Kolkata: Actor and Trinamool Congress parliamentarian Tapas Pal was on Thursday released on bail after more than a year in detention in Odisha.

He was arrested at the end of December 2016 by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for allegedly helping the now defunct Rose Valley group run ponzi schemes. He was taken to Odisha where duped depositors had filed police complaints.

The CBI had alleged that Pal was paid by the group for lending support to its illegitimate business.

The Trinamool Congress has defended its lawmakers saying the probe against them was politically motivated.
