Bengal moves SC on Narada CBI probe

Narada CBI names WB ministers after filing preliminary inquiry

Meanwhile, reacting to the Calcutta High Court order, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday had said that her government will challenge the order in the Supreme Court.

A senior lawyer who was attached to the case in the high court said: "The senior counsel in the Supreme Court advised the state not to seek early hearing of the appeal".

In a setback for the Trinamool Congress, the supreme court on Tuesday refused to stop the CBI probe into the Narada sting operation. "They said such a plea might have an adverse effect, and asked the government representatives to wait till Wednesday and see what the CBI was doing".

CBI has registered preliminary enquiry in connection with the Narada sting tapes in which several TMC leaders were caught taking money.

The controversy erupted in March a year ago when Narada News portal uploaded a series of videos purportedly showing a number of high-profile Trinamool leaders, including former and present ministers, MPs and state lawmakers, receiving money in exchange of favours to a fictitious company. If it finds that prima facie it is crime, the agency registers the FIR.

Sasse, a Republican, expects Democrats and interest groups to mount an aggressive opposition to Gorsuch's confirmation. Trump chose Gorsuch to replace the conservative Associate Justice Antonin Scalia, who died in February 2016.


The bench had noted that a report by the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Chandigarh, had said that the tapes were untampered.

A committee, set by the high court, had taken possession of all the devices.

The CBI has already contacted Narada News editor Mathew Samuel who had conducted the sting operation on several Trinamool Congress ministers, MPs and MLAs.

Passing the order, the court observed that the conduct of public figures must be beyond reproach. "But the CBI will do so if the court asked for it", a senior official of the central probe agency told PTI.
