Anubrata Mondal seeks CBI probe on the threat letter to the judge, while the court sends him to 14 days  jail custody

“I want to request the judge to order a CBI investigation into it,” Mr Mondal said in response to reporters'

Ankur Chatterjee: Trinamool Congress leader Anubrata Mondal has demanded that the CBI investigate a threat letter sent to an Asansol special CBI court judge who is hearing the alleged cattle smuggling case against him.

Rajesh Chakraborty, an Asansol special CBI court judge, wrote to Paschim Bardhaman district judge on Monday, urging that he take note of the “threat” and bring it to the attention of the Registrar, Judicial Service, of the Calcutta High Court.

“I want to request the judge to order a CBI investigation into it,” Mr Mondal said in response to reporters’ questions about the threat letter as he was being led to the Asansol special CBI court for production.

Judge Chakraborty wrote to the district judge that a letter threatening to embroil his family members in an NDPS case of commercial quantity if Mr Mondal is not released on bail soon.

When asked if he expects to be granted bail, the TMC Birbhum district president said it is up to the court to decide the bail terms.

“Mamata Banerjee has done a lot,” Mr Mondal said when asked if he wanted to send the chief minister a message.

At a public meeting in Kolkata on August 14, Mamata Banerjee stood by Anubrata Mondal, questioning what had he done to be arrested by the CBI.

She claimed that agencies are being used to malign whoever they want.

The CBI is investigating a cattle smuggling case in which it has arrested several people, including Mr Mondal, on August 11. Since then, he has been detained by the CBI.

Meanwhile, the judge refused to entertain Anubrata’s  bail petition today, and sent him to jail for another 14 days.
