CBI moves court against bail to Madan Mitra


Kolkata: The CBI on Tuesday moved the Calcutta High Court seeking cancellation of bail granted to Saradha accused West Bengal Transport Minister Madan Mitra.

Mitra, indicted by the agency of cheating, conspiracy and criminal breach of trust in the multi-crore-rupee scam, was granted bail by a lower court on Saturday nearly 11 months after his arrest.

A division bench of Justice Harish Tandon and Justice Ishan Chandra Das granted leave to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to move the petition in the court and serve a copy of it to Mitra’s counsel.

The move came on a day when Mitra, who was on Sunday discharged from the government-run SSKM Hospital where he spent most of his incarceration period, was admitted to a city hospital.

Mitra’s moving to a hospital yet again drew ridicule from opposition parties which have been strongly criticising the SSKM hospital authorities for finding him fit within 24 hours of getting bail.

According to jail authorities, Mitra spent less than 50 days in the prison since he was sent to judicial custody on December 19.
