Senior CPI-M leader Pabitra Kar on yesterday night said that he was interrogated by the Crime Branch of Tripura Police for over three hours on Friday in connection with a “corruption” case.
Kar said that during the interrogation, he had to answer the same questions which were already answered before. Now, he was also asked to give a written reply of the questions related to properties, the CPI-M leader told the media.
“Police are behaving well but being seated in a room for over three hours itself is harassment. The BJP government is levelling false allegations on us. It will prove again” he said.
Meanwhile, a case was filed against ex CPI-M MLA Pabitra kar by the vigilance on July last. Jermiya Darlong Dy. SP Vigilance had lodged the FIR at Bodhjungnagar police station (29/2021) under section 13(2/ 13(1C) of Prevention of Corruption Act.
In connection with the same case, earlier the Crime Branch had carried out an 11-hour-long raid at Kar’s residence in presence of a magistrate on July 09 last.
” This government is doing all these things to create mental pressure on us. They also created same pressure on Badal Chowdhury and thats why he became ill and was hospitalized. But we are not afraid. We will face all these things” said kar.
