Narada arrests: Madan Mitra, Sovan Chatterjee admitted to hospital after complaints of breathlessness

Kolkata/IBNS: Trinamool Congress (TMC) lawmaker Madan Mitra and former Kolkata Mayor Sovan Chatterjee, who have been arrested in the Narada case a day ago, were admitted to a hospital after complaints of breathlessness.

Mitra and Chatterjee were admitted to SSKM Hospital's Woodburn Block at around 3:40 am on Tuesday.

Two other arrested politicians, West Bengal Ministers Firhad Hakim and Subrata Mukherjee, are still in the Presidency Jail.

In a dramatic turn of events, the Calcutta High Court on Monday night stayed the CBI court's interim bail granted to Hakim, Mukherjee, Mitra and former TMC leader Sovan Chatterjee in connection with the Narada scam case.

On Monday evening, a special CBI court in Kolkata granted interim bail to the four accused.

The bail came after nearly seven hours of drama and confrontation as West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee camped at the CBI office in Kolkata for six hours.

Following the bail, the CBI had moved to the High Court which accepted the probe agency's plea.
