Narada case: CM Mamata Banerjee, others file fresh pleas before Calcutta HC for submitting affidavits
The next hearing of the Narada sting tapes case in the five-judge bench headed by Acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal is scheduled on Tuesday.
The Supreme Court also said, 'We hope the Calcutta High Court will not take up the hearing prior to June 25.'
Justice Sinha alleges that the CBI's e-mail asking for the Narada case to be transferred out of Bengal was wrongly listed by the Calcutta High Court.
Imposing conditions, a five-judge bench of the high court directed the four accused persons, who are under house arrest, to furnish bail bonds of Rs 2 lakh each.
Speaking to the media personnel on Sunday, Banerjee alleged that the West Bengal Governor has directly transferred the case (Narada) to CBI, which is against the Constitution.
BJP leaders Mukul Roy and Suvendu Adhikari are also accused in the case, with Roy being the accused number one.
Counsels appearing for ministers Subrata Mukherjee and Firhad Hakim, MLA Madan Mitra and Sovan Chatterjee mentioned the matter before a division bench.
Banerjee had rushed to the CBI office, shortly after state ministers Subrata Mukherjee and Firhad Hakim and TMC MLA Madan Mitra were arrested by the central agency.
Officials said that since the governor administers the oath of office and secrecy to the ministers, his or her office is the sanctioning authority.
The governor urged Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to contain the 'explosive situation' and asked her to weigh the '"repercussions of such lawlessness and failure of constitutional mechanism'.
