The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Saturday questioned the nephew of chief minister Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Abhishek Banerjee in connection with the school recruitment scam in West Bengal. Banerjee has questioned the probe agency's decision to summon him on short notice.
After being questioned for over nine hours by CBI on Saturday, Abhishek Banerjee said that the quizzing by the probe agency was a waste of each other's time.
"I was questioned for 9 hrs 40 minutes by CBI. This was a total waste of their time (CBI time) and my time. Arrest me if you have proof against me. We will not bow down to you," TMC MP said.
The CBI summons came after the Calcutta High Court on Thursday allowed the central agencies to quiz the TMC leader in the recruitment scam in West Bengal schools.Central agencies previously questioned Abhishek, his wife and his sister-in-law in relation to a coal smuggling scam case. (ANI)
