Supreme Court stays Calcutta High Court order for ED, CBI probe against TMC’s Abhishek Banerjee in school-for-jobs case

A Special Leave Petition (SLP) was filed claiming that the High Court cast “unsubstantiated aspersions” on Banerjee and effectively directed the CBI and ED to initiate investigation against him, despite the fact that he was neither a party nor connected to the writ petition being heard.

“Such an overreaching attempt in the Impugned Order, is not only detrimental to the Petitioner herein, but also unheard of in judicial principles, and on this ground alone, the said Impugned Order, deserves to be set aside,” the SLP stated.

It was pointed out that the High Court order was passed in an application filed by the ED on a complaint by Ghosh against officers of ED and CBI for allegedly coercing him to name Banerjee in the ongoing investigation relating to malpractices in primary education recruitment.

Banerjee in his plea further highlighted that Justice Gangopadhyay, who passed the order, had expressed his dislike for the TMC leader in an interview given to a news channel last September.
