High Court rejects CBI’s plea in Metro Dairy case

There have been irregularities in the sale of shares of Metro Dairy. The allegation was filed by Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, a Congress MP from Behrampur. Not only that, he also filed a case in the Calcutta High Court seeking a CBI inquiry. But today, Monday, the Calcutta High Court dismissed Adhir Chowdhury’s application. And the clear direction of the Calcutta High Court, this investigation will be done by the state police. No other agency will be given the responsibility of investigation.

Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury had filed a case in the Calcutta High Court alleging that the shares of Metro Dairy had been sold cheaply. The case was filed in 2016. Allegedly, the sale of these shares has caused a loss of hundreds of crores of rupees. The Singapore company has bought it at the lowest price. He alleged that about 46 per cent shares of Metro Dairy were sold in a roundabout way.

And what happened? During the trial, the CBI informed the Calcutta High Court that it was ready to investigate if the court gave directions. But the court relied on the state police. Adhir Chowdhury played the push. Former Union Minister and lawyer P Chidambaram came to question the case. He was then harassed.

What exactly happened to P Chidambaram? পি P Chidambaram had to face protests from Congress lawyers when he came to question the state government in this case. While Chidambaram was walking in the Calcutta High Court premises wearing a black coat, he was surrounded by protesters as Mamata Banerjee’s pimp. The slogan became ‘Go back Chidambaram.’ However, Chidambaram’s argument was won as the case was dismissed.
