Narada case: CBI sleuths land up at Kol mayor’s of­fice

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - | POLITICS POLICY - NEWS NET­WORK

Kolkata: Afour-mem­ber CBI team landed in mayor So­van Chat­ter­jee’s of­fice at the Kolkata Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion head­quar­ters on Fri­day morn­ing to un­der­take a spot ver­i­fi­ca­tion as part of their in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the Narada case.

Once inside, the CBI team pho­tographed the mayor’s cham­ber and an­techam­ber and the fur­ni­ture to ver­ify the spot as al­leged by the com­plainant. Sources said the pho­to­graphs would be com­pared with the footage ap­pear­ing in the Narada video tapes where the mayor was al­legedly seen ac­cept­ing wads of notes from some­one who was not in the frame. The mayor is the only ac­cused in the Narada case to deny hav­ing ac­cepted any cash.

“The place or room will also be shown to the wit­ness and asked to com­pare and ver­ify if they are same. If the wit­ness cor­rob­o­rates, then it acts as a piece of ev­i­dence in the case,” an of­fi­cer said. “They (CBI) had come to my of­fice. There was no ques­tion­ing. I of­fered them tea and talked to them,” Chat­ter­jee said.
