Calcutta HC asks for sting footage

Kolkata, March 22 (IANS) The Calcutta High Court on Tuesday directed Narada News to submit footages of the sting operation it had conducted against several leaders of West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress.

A division bench of Chief Justice Manjula Chellur and Justice Arijit Banerjee directed Narada News CEO Mathew Samuel, who conducted the sting, to provide all details of his company along with the footages of the sting in an affidavit by April 5.

The order came as the court heard three public interest litigations filed separately by a Congress leader, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader and an advocate.

Contending that the “doctored footages” were made not in public interest but in political interest, counsel for the Trinamool pleaded with the court to not to pass any orders till the Bengal assembly elections were over.

Rejecting the plea, the court directed the company to file the details and fixed April 8 as the next date of hearing.
