Kolkata, 26 April (H.S.). The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has come under siege of Trinamool President Anuvrat Mandal of Birbhum district, allegedly involved in the election violence case along with West Bengal’s much-discussed coal and cattle smuggling. His passport has been sought from Anuvrat Mandal by the officials of the central agency, in response to which he has said that he does not have a passport. After this, the CBI team has deposited the Xerox of his Aadhar and PAN card.


Along with this, the Airport Authority of India has been alerted about the division so that it cannot leave this other state or country. Apart from this, the CBI has also expressed doubts about the repeated summons of the CBI but the report of his health from the state’s state-run SSKM Hospital, saying that he was ill. Its copy has been sent to AIIMS for examination to find out whether Mandal is really ill or efforts are being made to save him through the government hospital. On Monday, by writing a letter to the central agencies, Anuvrat Mandal had applied for virtual or home inquiry. However, the CBI has not yet taken any decision in this regard.

It is noteworthy that the CBI team has summoned him several times, but every time he has not joined the questioning by talking about illness.
