Kolkata, Feb 23 : West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress (TMC) supremo Mamata Banerjee on Tuesday visited Abhishek Banerjee’s residence here.
The TMC supremo stayed at Abhishek Banerjee’s residence only for ten minutes and then drove to the State Secretariat Nabanna.
A team of CBI official arrived at Abhishek Banerjee’s residence to
question his wife Rujira Banerjee.
Rujira was issued summon by the central investigating agency asking her to be available for questioning in the case.
Earlier, a team of officials visited her on Sunday as well. However, she was not present.
On Monday, the wife of the TMC leader wrote to the CBI, saying that she was “unaware of the reason for questioning”.
Rujira further said that the CBI team may visit her between 11 AM and 3 PM on 23 February 2021.
A CBI source said some suspicious bank transactions related to the coal scam are related to Abhishek’s wife Rujira. That is why the CBI team wants to question Abhishek’s wife Rujira.
Meanwhile, Abhishek Banerjee has alleged that he is being targetted by the saffron party ahead of the state elections.
Taking note of the CBI summon, Abhishek on Sunday tweeted saying “if they think they can use these ploys to intimidate us, they are mistaken. We are not the ones who would ever be cowed down.”
