Kolkata: Expelled CPI(M) Rajya Sabha member Ritabrata Banerjee was been summoned second time on Saturday by the West Bengal CID over his alleged involvement in a sexual exploitation case.
A team of CID officers pasted the summons letter on the door of his 86 Ramlal Bazaar, Kishalay School Lane residence in Garfa area in Kolkata. Banerjee has been asked to meet the investigating officers at CID headquarters in Bhawani Bhawan.
Earlier Ritabrata Banerjee filed a complaint at Garfa police station alleging that Namrata Dutta had been blackmailing her and pressuring him to pay hefty amounts in return of not disclosing their physical relationships. Banerjee, 38, sniffs a conspiracy to damage his political career. In a statement on September 17, the CPI(M) politburo member and West Bengal state secretary Surya Kant Mishra said Banerjee was expelled for “anti-party and anti-communist role”.
