CBI dials Mukul Roy to reconstruct sting video
Kolkata: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday called up expelled Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy for reconstruction of the Narada sting video case. The CBI expressed their desire to visit Roy's residence at Gurusaday Dutta Road in Kolkata for the reconstruction. It was in this address where former Narada news CEO Mathew Samuel had turned up twice. Roy was, however, not seen in the video taking notes in the Narada video footage. Sources in the CBI said that Roy had sought time citing his tight schedule in the wake of his resignation from the party and his Rajya Sabha seat. "He has said that he is presently in New Delhi and will be in Kolkata by the end of this month and will then co-operate in the investigation," a senior CBI official said. The expelled Trinamool Congress leader in the Narada video had taken the name of police officer SMH Mirza who was seen in the video taking notes. The CBI in the recent times is stressing on reconstructing the various phases of the Narada sting video.
The CBI team has reconstructed the scene in the residence of TMC MP Aparupa Poddar, in the hotel owned by TMC leader Iqbal Ahmed and also in the offices of TMC MP Prasun Bandopadhyay and state Transport minister Suvendu Adhikari in Haldia. It may be mentioned that Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Roy for interrogation in the Narada sting case for recording his statement. He was earlier questioned by the officers of the CBI on September 11 in similar connection.
