Kolkata: Senior Supreme Court Lawyer Kapil Sibal will the advocating to the release of jailed Trinamool Minister Madan Mitra who is lodged in jail since last December in connection with Saradha Scam. On Thursday the hearing of the Saradha case will be held at Calcutta High Court where Sibal would be advocating for Mitra.
The decision of Sibal has already placed the Congress in an embarrassing situation. Sibal had previously advocated for Trinamool Congress in the Supreme Court. The bail plea of Madan Mitra has previously been rejected on various occasions by the High Court and other lower courts. Madan has also expressed his displeasure on the party for his fate.
Mitra has spent most of the time at the SSKM while in Jail custody. There have been allegations that he is being given special treatment at the jail and at the hospital even though he is on trial. Now it is a matter of question whether the Gods of fortune smiles on Madan or not.
