New Delhi: Two West Bengal ministers have been jailed and two Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders hospitalised who all were arrested in connection with the Narada Sting Case.
The Narada tapes were made public just before the 2016 assembly elections in the state in which seven TMC MPs, four ministers, one MLA and a police officer were purportedly caught taking money on camera in a 2014 sting operation carried out by Narada news journalist Matthew Samuel.
State ministers Firhad Hakim, Subrata Mukherjee, TMC MLA Madan Mitra, and former minister Sovan Chatterjee were arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Monday morning in Kolkata in connection with the case.
They all were sent to the Presidency correctional home.
Mitra and Chatterjee had to be hospitalized after they began complaining of breathlessness early the next morning. Hakim and Mukherjee remained in jail.
It’s notable that protests erupted all over the state on Monday after CBI made arrests.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee camped at CBI office for more than six- hours and demanded her arrest too in protest. (PW News)
