Sting operation: Will examine video, pass it on, says CEC

Kolkata, March 15 (IANS) Chief Election Commissioner Nasim Zaidi on Tuesday said the poll panel will examine the video of the purported sting operation carried out by a news portal and pass it on to the relevant authorities.

Addressing the media here, he said the poll panel has received the video from political parties.

“We have received representation (video) from political parties… we will get it examined.. we will pass it on to the relevant authorities,” said Zaidi.

The sting operation carried out by Narada News and uploaded on its website allegedly shows as many as 11 leaders of West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress, including former union ministers, state ministers and MPs, accepting bribes in return for favours to a fictitious company.

The Trinamool has rubbished the allegations made in the sting operation and threatened legal action against the news portal claiming the videos were “doctored”.
