In a petition seeking transfer of the Narada sting tape case to the CBI before the Calcutta High Court, West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee and Law Minister Moloy Ghatak have been made parties.

Several petitions by Ministers Subrata Mukherjee and Firhad Hakim, TMC MLA Madan Mitra and former Kolkata mayor Sovan Chatterjee will also be heard by the same bench of Acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal to recall the order of staying bail granted by the CBI Court in connection with their arrest.

Trinamool congress MP and lawyer Kalyan Banerjee has also been made party before the High Court.

Representing the CBI, Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta told the bench that an extraordinary situation had evolved, with the chief minister of the state sitting on a dharna outside the office of the investigating agency.

CBI also claimed that the law minister of West Bengal was also present in the court with the mob, where the accused were to be present.

The agency also contended that various supporters gathered outside the CBI office and did not allow the officers to move and produce the accused in the Court.

The accused were produced before a Special CBI Court through a virtual mode.
