Kolkata: Amid the interrogation of several IPS officers from West Bengal in relation to the Saradha chit fund scam, CBI started interrogating Mukul Roy’s close aide IPS SMH Mirza in Narada Sting operation case at Nizam Palace on Thursday morning.
The concerned IPS officer SMH Meerza along with several other Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders and ministers were purportedly seen taking cash in the video footage of the Narada sting operation case.
According to CBI sources they got some vital information about Mirza during the questioning of journalist Mathew Samuels the CEO of Narada News.
The Narada sting operation was conducted in 2014. However, the video footage surfaced ahead of the West Bengal Assembly elections in 2016 created a furore in the state politics.
CBI took over the investigation of the case following a Calcutta High Court order.
