Narada sting operation: Calcutta HC orders CBI probe

News Agencies | Updated on: 17 March 2017, 13:24 IST

The Calcutta High Court on 17 March  ordered the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to investigate the allegations against the Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders, who were allegedly seen taking bribes in a Narada News-organised video string operation.

Earlier in April 2016, the Calcutta High 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.
