Narada Sting case: CBI reaches BJP leader Mukul Roy’s residence with IPS officer SMH Mirza to question him

"Mamata Banerjee is hatching a big conspiracy against me. Whoever is being arrested for corruption, they are being told to take my name", said Mukul Roy, the BJP leader.

The CBI reached the residence of BJP leader Mukul Roy to question him in connection with the Narada Sting Operation case. IPS officer SMH Mirza, who was arrested recently, was made to accompany the CBI during the questioning as well.

The ‘face-to-face’ interrogation has been videotaped by the investigative agency, reports say. In the tapes that had surfaced in 2016, Roy and Mirza were allegedly seen accepting bribes for favours.

The BJP leader was grilled by the CBI for two and a half hours on Saturday. Following the interrogation, he had accused Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee of hatching a “big conspiracy” in a bid to frame him. He promised to cooperate with the investigative agencies fully.

“Mamata Banerjee is hatching a big conspiracy against me. Whoever is being arrested for corruption, they are being told to take the name of Mukul Roy,” he said. “Everybody is being instructed (to take my name),” he claimed. “I would like to state that I am always ready to face the probe agency, because I know I have no involvement in the case,” he stated further.

IPS officer SMH Mirza became the first person to be arrested in the Narada Sting Operation Case on Thursday. The sting operation was conducted by Mathew Samuels of the Narada News portal. Samuel posed as a businessman and could be seen in the tapes offering money to Trinamool Congress leaders. The video clips span over 52 hours and showed 13 people, including seven MPs, four ministers, one MLA and an IPS officer accepting a total of Rs 60.5 lakh as bribe.
