Kolkata: The Calcutta High Court today accepted Central Bureau Investigation’s (CBI) plea seeking cancellation of bail granted to Trinamool Congress leader Madan Mitra.

Madan Mitra who is accused in the Saradha Scam (Small Savings fund) and held the portfolio of Transport Minister in Mamata’s cabinet gave his resignation which was later accepted by the Chief Minister.

While responding to the court’s judgment, Mitra’s lawyers sought seven days’ time but that too was rejected by the court.

BJP leader Sidharth Nath Singh said, “Welcome the decision of court in Saradha scam… Madan Mitra has been asked to surrender immediately”.
