SC annuls HC order on Mamata affidavits

Wednesday 30th June 2021 07:50 EDT

The Supreme Court set aside the Calcutta high court’s order refusing to accept affidavits of West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee and law minister Moloy Ghatak in the ongoing proceedings relating to grant of bail to four TMC leaders arrested in the Narada scam and allowed them to make a fresh request to the HC to accept their affidavits. A bench of Justices Vineet Saran and Dinesh Maheshwari said the CM and the law minister could file fresh applications requesting the HC to take on record their affidavits. Mamata and Ghatak were accused by the CBI of impeding the production of four arrested TMC leaders before the trial court in Kolkata on May 17 by allegedly leading hordes of TMC workers to the CBI office and the trial court and attempting to obstruct the process of law.
