Narada case: ED summons Mukul Roy
Kolkata: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Friday summoned expelled Trinamool Congress leader Mukul Roy in connection with Narada sting operation.
It may be mentioned that ED officers want to record the statement of Roy. He was earlier questioned by the officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the similar connection.
It was on September 11 when the CBI officers recorded the statement of Roy in connection with Narada sting operation and he was grilled for around six hours.
Sources said during interrogation, he told the investigating officers that he was not found in the video footages of the sting operation and now the ED officers want to interrogate him to verify statements.
The ED officers have sent notice summoning MP Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar and MP Prasun Banerjee in this connection. The investigating officers urged both the MPs to turn up at their offices to speak to them in connection with the sting operation.
It may be recalled that Prasun Banerjee had assured all support to investigating officers to probe into the incident when he went to the office of the CBI on September 5.
Banerjee had said: "It is important to co-operate with the investigating agencies." He had also said that he gave all documents including the passbook as he had deposited the money that was taken as donation for election purpose in a bank.
