Arrested TMC leaders taken to Presidency jailMay 18, 2021 09:28
In the ongoing investigation in the West Bengal's Narada scam, Trinamool Congress Ministers Firhad Hakim, Subrata Mukherjee, MLA Madan Mitra and Former Mayor of Kolkata Sovan Chatterjee were taken to Presidency Jail.
As per sources, "Four leaders had been granted the bail from the special CBI court. But later on, CBI moved to the high court citing that the investigation could not be carried on because they are influential."
While briefly speaking to ANI after leaving from the office, TMC leader Madan Mitra said, "The central government, mainly both the leaders can't accept the recent poll verdict of the people of Bengal. The ball has started rolling..."
Speaking in this matter, Firhad Hakim's daughter, Shabba Hakim told ANI, "It's a conspiracy by PM Modi and Amit Shah as they could not win Bengal democratically. Now they want to win it by arresting the most popular leaders and creating conspiracies to pave the way for a presidential rule."
"The bail was granted but for four hours they were illegally detained and somehow CBI knew that the bail will be cancelled. Our lawyers didn't even appear before the high court and bail got cancelled", she said.
Earlier, a team of doctors arrived at the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)'s office for a medical check-up of four TMC leaders who were arrested, in connection with Narada Scam. -- ANI
