CBI summons investigative journalist Mathew Samuel in connection with Narada Scam

The Narada Scam relates to a sting operation conducted by investigative journalist Mathew Samuel on TMC leaders and IAS officers

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has issued summons to Editor and Managing Director of Narada News to be present at their office in Kolkata on June 24 in connection with Narada Scam in West Bengal.
