CBI to probe Narada sting operation: Calcutta High Court

But after she returned to power, Ms Banerjee agreed to probe the sting operation by the state police and contested the petition in the high court against transferring the case to the CBI.
West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said the Trinamool Congress and her government will challenge Calcutta high court order in Narada sting before the Supreme Court.
Earlier on Friday, calling the Narada case a cognizable offence and harmful for the society, a division bench, consisting of Calcutta HCs acting Chief Justice Nishita Mhatre and Justice Tapabrata Chakraborty, directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to take charge of Narada probe in the next 24 hours and to submit a preliminary inquiry report by 72 hours.
At that time, CM Mamata Banerjee had termed it as a conspiracy by rival parties to hurt her party's image. "The chief minister should also be brought under the purview of the investigation as it is her party leaders and cabinet ministers who are involved in the scam", Surya Kanta Mishra, CPI (M) state secretary, said while addressing the rally. The High Court gave the order after hearing three Public Interest Litigations requessting for an independent investigation in the controversy that emerged previous year in March when the Narada News portal uploaded some video footages purportedly showing some Trinamool Congress leaders receiving money in exchange of favours to a fictitious firm.
