The Central Bureau of Investigation, today filed FIR against Twelve TMC leaders and an IPS officer in connection with the Narada sting case. Sources said, the agency has registered case of alleged criminal conspiracy and corruption against TMC Rajya Sabha MP Mukul Roy, Lok Sabha MPs Sultan Ahmed, Saugata Roy, Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Aparupa Poddar among others.
Last month, the Calcutta High Court had ordered CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry in the case in which several leaders of the ruling party in West Bengal were seen purportedly taking money in a video aired by media portal. The Supreme Court had also upheld the Calcutta high court verdict.
The Narada sting tapes, which were released to different news organisations before the 2016 assembly elections in West Bengal, showed people resembling senior TMC leaders receiving money allegedly for giving future favours.
