Being not satiated with the order of the Hon’ble Calcutta High court that allows the house arrest of the four TMC leaders in the Narada Scam case, the Central Bureau of Investigation moved to the Hon’ble Supreme Court.
In the instant matter, the investigative agency has also circulated an adjournment letter in front of the Hon’ble division bench of the Hon’ble Calcutta high court consisting of 5-judges.
Moreover, the Hon’ble high court decided to hear the parties and the issues of CBI in the instant matter on upcoming Monday for the reason that the parties are moving to the Hon’ble apex court to challenge the validity of the judgment.
In the due course, CBI has also stated before the Hon’ble High Court that the special leave petition has been filed before the Hon’ble Supreme Court. Subsequently, it was also stated by the CBI that the agency sought to have a larger bench to decide the instant matter.
However, on the 21st of May 2021, the Hon’ble Division Bench consisting of Hon’ble Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Hon’ble Justice Arijit Banerjee of the Hon’ble Calcutta High Court was hearing the case concerning the bail of four Trinamool Congress leaders who had been in CBI custody in the Narada Scam case.
Nevertheless, the order passed by the Hon’ble bench is said to be conflicting in the eyes of law as Hon’ble Justice Arijit Banerjee granted an interim bail wherein on the other hand Hon’ble Justice Rajesh Bindal resorted them to house arrest. Yet the accused in the instant matter were ordered to be under house arrest.
