Narada: CBI moves Supreme Court against Calcutta HC order

Last week, four AITC Ministers Firhad Hakim, Subrata Mukherjee, MLA Madan Mitra and Former Mayor Sovan Chatterjee were arrested by CBI in the scam

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a Special Leave Petition (SLP) before the Supreme Court challenging the Calcutta High Court‘s order which allowed the house arrest of four Trinamool Congress (AITC) leaders, who are accused in the case. The probe agency, CBI, in its appeal, filed before the Apex Court, sought deferment of the larger Bench hearing, fixed for today before the five- Bench of the Calcutta High Court.

The Calcutta High Court, in its order recently on 21 May, had allowed four AITC leaders, including two sitting ministers, accused in the case, to be granted bail, and to be kept under house arrest.

The Calcutta High Court had referred the pleas of these four leaders to be heard by a five- bench after the split verdict was passed by the two-Judge bench.

The four politicians of West Bengal accused in the case are two sitting ministers of Mamata Banerjee-led government — Firhad Hakim and Subrata Mukherjee — and AITC legislators — Madan Mitra and former MLA Sovan Chatterjee.

The case said that the sting operation was conducted by one Narada News in West Bengal, showing around 12 then AITC ministers, leaders and an IPS officer were allegedly caught accepting bribes. The stint operations tapes were released in the case to expose the accused persons before the 2016 West Bengal Assembly elections.

The Calcutta High Court had, in 2017 in its order, directed a preliminary to be conducted by the CBI in the case.

The Calcutta High Court passed this order after going through a Public Litigation(PIL) seeking a thorough, impartial and independent into the Narada tapes sting operation case.

Last week, four AITC Ministers Firhad Hakim, Subrata Mukherjee, MLA Madan Mitra and Former Mayor Sovan Chatterjee were arrested by CBI in the Narada scam.

The Narada sting operation was conducted by Narada news founder Mathew Samuel for over two years in West Bengal. Conducted allegedly in 2014 for the news Tehelka, it was published on a private news website Narada News months before the 2016 West Bengal Assembly elections.

The case is related to a sting operation, commonly known as Narada Sting Operation, in which these former public servants were caught on camera while receiving illegal gratification from the Sting Operator, Samuel.

Just like nation needs new generation of leaders, we need younger generation of op-ed writers and political commentators.

Some of them have become so ghisa-pita that the fact that they have vested interests is not at all hidden from even the naive.

A senior #US trade official privately criticised #India's July decision to ban Mastercard Inc from issuing new cards, calling it a "draconian" move that caused "panic", a global news wire reported.

The #RBI (@RBI) accuses companies of breaking local data-storage rules.
