Immigration authorities detained Narada News CEO Mathew Samuel at the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi on his arrival from the US following a lookout notice issued against him by the Kolkata police.
Kolkata police have been informed about the detention and asked to approach the immigration authorities with relevant documents about the case before he could be handed over to them, official sources said.
Kolkata Police had registered a case against Samuel on a complaint by city Mayor and Fire and Emergency Services Minister Sovan Chattopadhyay's wife. Chattopadhyay was purportedly seen accepting money in the sting operation video released by Narada News.
The controversial Narada sting operation, which surfaced just ahead of the assembly elections, purportedly showed several Trinamool Congress leaders and an IPS officer accepting money for consideration.
