Kolkata: Trinamool Congress MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar was on Thursday summoned by the CBI in connection with Narada sting case. Earlier, she was summoned after she was seen – in the tapes – accepting money from Narada News CEO Mathew Samuel in exchange for favours.
Samuel is also been asked to appear on Wednesday and both of them are likely to reach CBI office at Nizam Palace around 11 am in South Kolkata.
CBI summoning senior party leaders for questioning in Narada case has left the state Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee embarrassed – who is already facing serious law and order challenges in Bengal.
The sting operation case was conducted by Narada news in West Bengal to expose the alleged corrupt practices of ministers in the Mamata Banerjee’s government. The sting was conducted under the supervision of its (Narada news) founder Mathew Samuel for a period of two years.
Ahead of the 2016 Assembly elections in West Bengal, Narada news released videos of sting operations, which sent ripples across the political fraternity across the country.
