The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that the CBI investigation into Narada sting operation case will continue and has given the agency one month to conduct its preliminary inquiry, rejecting the state government’s plea that sought to prevent the CBI from probing the case.

The decision was taken by a three-judge bench after the West Bengal government had approached the apex court against Calcutta High Court’s order directing a probe. The court had passed the order on March 17 and the state government had sought a stay on it.

According to reports, the Mamata Banerjee government also tendered an unconditional apology before the court. West Bengal government lawyer was made to apologise for calling the Calcutta High Court biased in the state’s appeal against a CBI probe.

Earlier, on Monday, CBI had submitted its preliminary compliance report on the case. According to the sources, if enough evidence is found in the initial investigation, an FIR will be registered and raids will be conducted at premises of those involved.

Further details are awaited.

        What Mumtaz will do now? One way is there take the help of Khujli and both (they can take the help of Pappu if he is available) should sit on Dharna before SC with their selected ministers and other sympathisers and shout slogans in high pitch that SC judges are in league with PM. Let public know your real worth.

          Avi, being a Bengali you should know that local stalwarts of BJP are child traffickers, kharagpur murderer and abusers of amartyaa send. Just the other day babul supriya abused a women in the TV channel for which arrest warrant is issued. Why CBI, Highcourt and SC silent on these matters.

            How can you trust SC judgement when widow of erstwhile Aruna chal Pradesh chief minister peioned vice president of India for abetment of suicide of his husband by a group of SC judges and cji khehar Singh. They wanted huge bribe from the late cm for his reinstatement. They peioned SC but withdrew it last minute sensing CJI will subvert their appeal. This is the reality of SC. Regarding Calcutta Highcourt and CBI Les said the better.

                Mamata and west Bengal will be the Waterloo for narendra Modi and BJP. Bengal is different in every other way in political perception vis a vis mainstream politics. Calcutta Highcourt judges are biased and SC less said the better!!

                  Modi is playing with fire. Bengal is different, he has managed Highcourt, supreme court, CBI all of them, but could not manage Bengali people, who are secular and intelligent, not like the wretched poor people of Gujarat.

                    Modi is undoing all the accolades, he has garnered by winning UP election.Firstly, he stole elections in Goa and Manipur and now by remote controlling SC, High court and CBI.lt;br/gt;He will get a solid slap on his face by the bongs.

                        Then you'll cry for help and no one will be able to help.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Modi has nothing to do with HC or the SC.

                                    She has lost it way back when she threw out TATA out of WB.It was rumoured that TATA refused to pay commission because either the going rate was very high or the gentleman did not want to bribe as it was against his principle. So the woman cooked up some controversies and with the help of her gang made it very unsafe for the factory to function. Recently, everyone knows the drama she pla hours after the demonetisation. now the lady is gabrified because the law is on to her and she has nowhere to go and nowhere to hide.

                                      Why is IE moderator deleting normal, but critical (without obscenity or bad mouthing) comments on TMC? Is he not well versed in English language?

                                        Hope a regular case is registered in form of FIR and investigation is carried out in earnest and quick time,arrest the guilty, however big they be in TMC,even the CM;then only the people, especially that of Bengal,will believe that Central Government is serious about eradicating corruption.Otherwise,the credibility of Central Government will be questioned.
