CBI arrests Trinamool Congress strongman Anubrata Mondal in 2020 cattle smuggling case

The Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI) on Thursday arrested Trinamool Congress leader Anubrata Mondal in connection with a cattle smuggling case.

Mondal was arrested after an almost hour-long interrogation by a CBI team that arrived at the Birbhum district president's house early on Thursday, he said.

We have arrested him for non-cooperation in the investigation into the cattle smuggling scam.

We have found Mr Mondal's direct involvement in the scam. We will question him today and take necessary action as per law

the official told PTI. The CBI served a notice to the TMC leader under Section 41 of CrPC before arresting him, he said.

Anubrata Mondal was grilled in a room on the second floor of his residence, the official said.

He said the CBI would also question the doctor of a Bolpur hospital who had prescribed Mondal bed rest for 14 days
