Kolkata, Sep 11 (IANS) Two central agencies – the CBI and the ED – questioned Trinamool Congress MP Mukul Roy and West Bengal Transport Minister Suvendu Adhikari respectively in connection with the Narada sting probe, officials said on Monday.

“Adhikari was summoned earlier as a part of Narada sting probe but he appeared before our investigation team today (Monday). He was interrogated,” a Enforcement Directorate (ED) official said.

Roy was also summoned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to appear before the agency for questioning.

“He appeared today and was questioned,” a CBI official said.

Adhikari and Roy were among a dozen Trinamool leaders allegedly caught on video tape while receiving money in exchange for a promise to dole out favours to a fictitious company. The clipping was uploaded on the Narada news portal in March last year ahead of the assembly elections in West Bengal.
