Calcutta HC asks CBI to probe sting operation by Narada News”

The bench ordered the CBI to take possession within 24 hours of all devices now in the possession of the court which were used in the sting operation. Referring to the charges that his tapes were fake, he said, "Only I would know whether they were fake or not". A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Nishita Mhatre and Justice Tapabrata Chakraborty of the high court passed the order after finding the Narada footage to be "authentic" Referring to a report earlier submitted by the Central Forensic Science Laboratory, Chandigarh, where the footage was verified, it held the tapes were not tampered with. "The chief minister should also be brought under the purview of the investigation as it is her party leaders and cabinet ministers who are involved in the scam", Surya Kanta Mishra, CPI (M) state secretary, said while addressing the rally. The TMC leaders were found seen accepting bribes in a sting operation done by the Narada News.

Citing reasons for ordering the CBI probe, the High Court held that "the State Police, are at best, unfortunately, puppets on a string", and it is of utmost importance that the enquiry should be conducted by "a neutral and independent investigating agency".

Mamata defended her ministers and said that the BJP is behind the sting operation.
