Court always does justice: Bengal minister after bail cancellation

Kolkata, Nov 19 (IANS) On a day when the Calcutta High Court cancelled his bail and ordered him to surrender, Trinamool Congress lawmaker and Saradha scam accused Madan Mitra on Thursday asserted that a court always metes out justice.

“Can court do injustice? Court always metes out justice,” Mitra said while on his way to surrender before the Alipore court in compliance with the order by the Calcutta High Court division bench of Justices Nishita Mhatre and Tapas Mukherjee.

“I am going to surrender; I am yet to receive the court’s order. But since I have seen it on TV, and the court has directed to surrender, I am going to surrender to abide by the court order,” said Mitra, who has been indicted by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the multi-crore-rupee chit fund scam.

The CBI had moved an appeal before the high court, after Mitra was granted bail by a lower court on October 31, nearly 11 months after he was arrested by the CBI on December 12 on charges of cheating, conspiracy and criminal breach of trust in connection with the state’s biggest financial scandal that came to light in April 2013.

Mitra’s bail cancellation came a day after he quit as West Bengal’s transport and sports minister, apparently to blunt the CBI’s argument that his continuation in the cabinet was proof of his immense influence despite being indicted and jailed in the scam.
