Kolkata: The Calcutta High Court on Monday gave interim relief to Leader of Opposition and BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari after the CID summoned him in connection with the probe into the death of his bodyguard.

“He does not need to take any action right now in the context of the CID summons,” the court said in its verbal order.

Earlier today, Adhikari did not appear before the West Bengal CID in connection with the probe into the death case, stating that he was busy.

Adhikari, the BJP’s Nandigram MLA, was summoned by the CID to its headquarters at Bhabani Bhawan in Kolkata in connection with the death of his bodyguard Subhobrata Chakraborty.

“He mailed us around 9.30 am, mentioning some political engagements due to which he was unable to come and meet our officers,” a CID officer told PTI.

Chakraborty had allegedly shot himself with his service revolver at the security camp outside Adhikari’s Kanthi residence in October 2018, according to police.

So far, the investigation agency has interrogated more than 15 people, including 11 policemen, in connection with the death case.

Chakraborty, a personnel of the State Armed Police, was a part of Adhikari’s security team since he became an MP. He remained in the team after Adhikari was made a minister in the Mamata Banerjee government.
