The Calcutta High Court bench of Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Arijit Banerjee will not sit today, and the highly volatile and eagerly contested Narada case will not be heard today. It was scheduled to be heard by the first bench at 2 pm. The reason given by the court was “unavoidable circumstances”.
The case involves senior ministers and MLAs of the Trinamool Congress who have been left hanging through an internment order issued by the CBI, and a stay on the bail order for all four, issued by the high court.
The notification issued by the court on its website says that the First Bench, which heard the matter yesterday, will not assemble today due to “unavoidable circumstances”.
Those in jail are Firhad Hakim, Subrata Mukherjee, Madan Mitra, and Sovan Chatterjee. They were arrested on May 17 morning.
