CBI Makes Mamata Party In Transfer Of Narada Sting Case

Kolkata: On Monday, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee landed at the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) regional office at Nizam Palace here and dared the central probe agency to arrest her. Her angry reaction came after two of her ministers, an MLA and a former Mayor were arrested by the CBI in connection with the Narada sting case.

The CBI made the West Bengal CM a party to the transfer of case petition and also included Trinamool Congress MP and advocate Kalyan Banerjee and state Law minister Malay Ghatak in the 123-page petition on Wednesday. The CBI highlighted the misconduct on the CM’s part.

“I heard the CM telling officials there is no rule that without the Speaker’s and state government’s permission one can arrest state officials. ‘You have to arrest me if you arrest my officials,’ Mamata had said,” advocate Anindo Raut claimed on the day of arrest of the four leaders.

West Bengal ministers Firhad Hakim and Subrata Mukherjee, MLA Madan Mitra and former Kolkata Mayor and TMC leader Sovan Chatterjee were taken in custody by the CBI from their respective residences on Monday for their alleged involvement in the 2016 Narada sting case.

All four accused were granted interim bail on Monday evening after a virtual hearing by a city sessions court, but the High Court stayed the bail order later in the evening.

On Wednesday, after more than two hours of the virtual session in the bench of the Chief Justice, the hearing was adjourned for the day, with the plea for review of bail to the quartet not even coming up.

Thus all four arrested leaders will be in jail custody for one more day at least, with the next hearing scheduled for Thursday.
