Narda Bribery Case
Four leaders including two Bengal ministers were moved to jail in Kolkata late last night after a day of dramatic developments that started with their early morning arrest in the Narada bribery case, followed by bail, which was finally put on hold by a court.
After their bail, challenged by the CBI, was stayed by the Calcutta High Court, Ministers Subrata Mukherjee and Firhad Hakim, Trinamool MLA Madan Mitra and former leader Sovan Chatterjee were taken to the Presidency correctional home late last night.
Around 4 am, Madan Mitra and Sovan Chatterjee were shifted to hospital after they complained of breathlessness.
Subrata Mukherjee was also taken to hospital briefly for a medical examination and then sent back to jail.
All four were taken on Monday morning to the CBI by central forces. To challenge their arrest, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee spent six hours at the CBI office and dared the investigators to arrest her.
