The Enforcement Directorate has issued summons to three West Bengal Ministers – Suvendu Adhikari, Subrata Mukherjee and Firhad Hakim – to appear at the earliest for questioning in connection with the Narada sting probe, an official said on Wednesday.

“They have been asked to appear at our Kolkata office at the earliest,” the ED official said.

Adhikari is State Transport Minister while Mukherjee has the portfolio of Panchayats, Rural Development and Public Health Engineering and Hakim looks after Urban Development Ministry.

The three were among a dozen Trinamool Congress leaders allegedly caught on video tape while receiving money in exchange for a promise to dole out favours to a fictitious company. The clipping was uploaded on the Narada news portal in March last year ahead of the assembly elections in West Bengal.

Many of the accused Trinamool leaders in the case have been questioned by the agency and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).
