Kolkata: Trinamool Congress Member of Parliament Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar was on Tuesday quizzed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Narada sting footage probe, an official said.
She was among a dozen Trinamool leaders allegedly caught on video while receiving money in exchange for a promise to dole out favours to a fictitious company.
The clipping was uploaded on the Narada news portal in March last year ahead of the state assembly elections.
Apart from Dastidar, state Transport Minister Suvendu Adhikari and Panchayats, Rural Development and Public Health Engineering Minister Subrata Mukherjee were also quizzed by the investigating agency.
The agency had also interrogated Kolkata Mayor and state Minister Sovan Chatterjee to appear before it.
The Trinamool party, encouraged by its landslide victory in the Bengal Assembly polls this year, has now set eyes on the two BJP-ruled states in the Northeast - Assam and Tripura
Supriyo had differences with BJP since the day he was dropped as a Union minister
Earlier on Saturday, the home ministry reduced Supriyo's security category from the 'Z' to 'Y' category
