Rujira Banerjee, wife of Trinamool MP Abhishek Banerjee, has been summoned by the CBI over a coal pilferage case. Abhishek Banerjee is also the nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
The senior Trinamool leader has responded to the summons on social media. He said that they will not be intimidated and they have full faith in the law.
Rujira Banerjee has been summoned in the case for the first time. The CBI had conducted raids related to the matter the previous week. An FIR had been registered earlier in November 2020 against Anup Manjhi alias Lala, Eastern Coalfield Ltd General Managers Amit Kumar Dhar and Jayesh Chandra Rai for their alleged involvement in the coal smuggling scam.
The names of ECL Chief of Security Tanmay Das, Area Security Inspector, Kunustoria Dhananjay Rai and SSI and security in-charge Kajor area Debashish Mukherjee were mentioned as well. It is alleged that Manjhi was involved in illegal mining and coal theft in Kunustora and Kajoria.
