HC directs to conduct forensic test of raw footage of Narada News's sting operation

Kolkata, Apr 29 (IBNS) A division bench of Calcutta High Court, comprising of CJ Manjulla Chellur and Justice Arijit Banerjee, on Friday directed to conduct a forensic test of the raw footage of Narada News's sting operation.

The footage and video-shooting gadget (Iphone) will be tested in Hyderabad lab.

The HC instructed the Central Forensic Science Laboratory (CFSL), Hyderabad to submit forensic test's report, in a sealed envelop, before the court in next 4 weeks.

 The ruling Trinamool Congress recently announced that it will conduct an internal inquiry into the Narada News sting operation case, nearly one month after the news portal released sting footage, showing TMC leaders taking bribes.

Earlier on Mar 14, Narada News released the first part of its sting operation's video, where West Bengal's ruling TMC leaders or officials or lawmakers, including MH Ahmed Mirza (senior police officer), Mukul Roy, Subrata Mukherjee, Sultan Ahmed, Suvendhu Adhikari,  Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Prasoon Banerjee, Sovon Chatterjee, Madan Mitra, Iqbal Ahmed and Farhad Hakim, were shown taking bribes.

TMC leaderships, however, claimed that the entire video was doctored and oppositions' conspiracy before the Bengal assembly polls.
