Narada sting operation: Calcutta HC orders CBI probe

ANI  |  Kolkata (West Bengal) [India] 

The Calcutta High on Friday ordered the (CBI) to investigate the allegations against the (TMC) leaders, who were allegedly seen taking bribes in a Narada News-organised video string operation.

Earlier in April 2016, the Calcutta High 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.
