Will move SC against Narada probe order: Mamata Banarjee

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday termed as “unfortunate” the Calcutta High Court order for a CBI probe into the Narada sting footage case, and said the order will be challenged in the Supreme Court.

“My government and the party (Trinamool Congress) will go to the higher court for justice,” a furious Banerjee told the media here.

As for the order’s timing, she said: “You also understand; I also understand the game.”

The high court on Friday ordered the CBI to conduct a preliminary inquiry within 72 hours.

In the clip uploaded by Narada News portal, prominent leaders of the ruling Trinamool Congress are allegedly seen taking money.

Claiming political vendetta, she attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party for the “planned” controversy.

“It was planned. It was planted. The sting was published from the BJP office at the time of assembly elections,” she said, adding that the West Bengal Police was not allowed to conduct an investigation as to why the footage was released before the elections.

“Within 24 hours of ordering the probe, the high court asked us to stop this. Kolkata Police is the best force in the world,” she said.
