CBI reaches Trinamool Birbhum chief Anubrata Mondal’s house after he skips summons
He was summoned by CBI ten times so far.
Officers of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday morning reached the Bolpur house of Trinamool Congress Birbhum district chief Anubrata Mondal, to question him in connection with the cattle smuggling case which the Central agency is investigating. Reportedly, the CBI officers have a court order to search Mondal’s house and are currently searching the premises and will question him during the day. The officers – along with a huge contingent of CRPF personnel – reached his house — in Bolpur of Birbhum district, approximately 160 km from Kolkata — and the Central force has been guarding the house to prevent any untoward incident.
Mondal has been summoned by the CBI ten times so far, but he has appeared before the agency officers only once. Over the past few days, he was called twice, but Mondal first went to Kolkata’s SSKM Hospital saying he was unwell, but where doctors said he did not require hospitalisation. Later, Mondal left for his Birbhum home where doctors from the district hospital checked him and advised him rest. After these recent developments over the past few days in which the Trinamool leader skipped summons at least twice, the CBI officers went to his house this morning.
