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