Kolkata: A supervising officer named Avay Singh involved in the probe of the Narada sting video was removed suddenly on Friday. However, CBI is yet to decide on the new supervising officer of the case.
Earlier, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) special director Rakesh Asthana rebuked Narada scam case Investigating Officer Ranjit Kumar for the slow progress in the probe. The CBI special director also rebuked Kumar for not regularly sending status report of the probe to New Delhi.
Asthana reached Kolkata and met the top CBI officials in Kolkata discussing the progress of the probes into Narada, Sarada and Rose Valley scams. Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee has called Asthana’s visit as ‘politically motivated’ to ‘haunt TMC in the run up to 2019 Lok Sabha elections’.
