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.
