NEW DELHI: West Bengal leader of the opposition Suvendu Adhikari on Monday got interim relief from Calcutta high court over CID’s summoning in connection with the probe into the death of his bodyguard in 2018.
Leader of Opposition Suvendu Adhikari on Monday did not appear before the West Bengal CID in connection with the probe into the death of his bodyguard, stating that he was busy, an officer said.
Adhikari, the BJP’s Nandigram MLA, was summoned by the CID to its headquarters in Bhabani Bhawan in connection with the death case of his bodyguard Subhobrata Chakraborty.
Chakraborty had allegedly shot himself with his service revolver at the security camp outside Adhikari’s Kanthi residence in October 2018, according to police.
The CID has so far questioned over 15 people, including 11 policemen.
