Narada case: CBI arrests Trinamool's Firhad, Subrata, Madan, Sovon

Kolkata, May 17 (TIWN) The Central Bureau of Investigation arrested two Trinamool Congress ministers -- Firhad Hakim and Subrata Mukherjee, apart from former Trinamool Minister and present MLA Madan Mitra and former Kolkata Corporation Mayor Sovon Chattopadhyay in the Narada sting tapes cases where several politicians and a high-ranked police officer were allegedly found accepting cash bribes in exchange for providing unofficial favours to the company.

The premiere agency that has already prepared the chargesheet in the case is likely to produce all four before the court on Monday.  “They have not given any notice and now they have arrested me. They didn’t even seek the permission of the Speaker. We will fight it in the court,” State Transport Minister and former Kolkata Mayor Firhad hakim told the media after he was arrested from his Chetla home in South Kolkata earlier in the day.  Along with Hakim three others were brought to the CBI regional office at Nizam Palace in the morning. Sources in CBI said that they were also arrested. 

The CBI officers with large central forces went to the houses of the leaders and the ministers in the morning at around 9.30 a.m. and brought to the regional office without even allowing them to speak to their lawyers.  Sources in the agency said that all of them were made to sit in separate rooms on the 15th floor of the office and they were allowed to consult their lawyers.
