The CBI on Thursday arrested senior Trinamool Congress leader Anubrata Mondal from his residence here for allegedly not cooperating in its probe into a cattle smuggling case, an official said.
Mondal was arrested after almost an hour-long interrogation by a CBI team that arrived at the Birbhum district president’s house early on Thursday, he said.
”We have arrested him for non-cooperation in the investigation into the cattle smuggling scam,” the official told PTI.
Mondal was taken to a hospital for medical check-up, he said.
The TMC leader had twice skipped his scheduled appearance before the central probe agency in the last few days, citing ill-health.
