Will Anubrata Mondal use the medical report again to dodge CBI…


Kolkata, Jun 3 (IANS) The two teams of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), which are carrying out parallel investigations into the cattle and charcoal smuggling cases as well as the post-election violence in West Bengal, doubt that the Trinamool congressional strongman Anubrata Mondal, who is a suspect in both cases, will again use medical prescriptions to avoid future summonses for questioning.

Doubts over that charge are circling as after being grilled by CBI detectives for six hours on Thursday in the post-election violence case, Mondal surrendered on Friday afternoon for a full medical examination at Woodburn Ward of the State SSKM Medical College and Hospital.

It was, moreover, the prescription of the SSKM that Mondal, president of the Birbhum district of the Trinamool Congress, had used from the beginning as a shield to avoid summonses from the CBI.

There is a related factor that reinforced the doubts of CBI detectives. After avoiding seven summonses by the CBI in the cattle and coal smuggling cases by using the SSKM prescription as a dodge, Mondal made his first appearance at the CBI’s Nizam Palace office on May 19.

But immediately after the toasting process was completed, he rushed to the same Woodburn neighborhood and went for a thorough medical examination. After that, he again began avoiding CBI medical calls until he reported back to the CBI office in Salt Lake on Thursday.

Now, CBI sources have said his rush to the SSKM immediately after each interrogation has a pattern, which heightens doubts that Mondal may avoid future summonses by the CBI.

According to the latest available information, after Mondal’s medical visit on Friday, the medical team advised him to take precautions due to his worsening hemorrhoids and other related issues.

“We are closely monitoring Mondal’s activities. We regularly brief our senior officials on this,” said a CBI officer, who did not wish to be named.
