Mamata to approach 'higher judiciary' on Narada sting operation

ANI  |  Kolkata (West Bengal) [India] 

After the Calcutta High ordered the (CBI) to look into the sting operation carried out by Narada News, Chief Minister on Friday said she will appeal against the order in a "higher judiciary".

Addressing the media here, the Trinamool Congress (TMC) chief said, "I will not comment on this, we will approach to the higher judiciary."

Coming to the rescue of her ministers, Banerjee said, "Everyone knows this that the sting was published from the office.

Earlier in the day, Banerjee suffered a huge setback as the Calcutta High ordered a probe into bribery allegations against top TMC parliamentarians and ministers.

Earlier in April 2016, the court had formed a three-member committee to probe the controversial tapes.

Narada News, led by its editor-in-chief Matthew Samuel, had earlier released three sets of videos of its sting operation, where top TMC leaders were allegedly seen accepting bribes from journalists posing as businessmen.

The ruling party had dismissed the tapes as 'doctored' and said the 'dirty tricks departments' of its political opponents were behind the 'smear' campaign.
