West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday ordered the police to probe the Narada controversial tapes. "The state government will conduct probe in the matter. I want the truth to come out," she said. Earlier in April, the Calcutta High Court had formed a three-member committee to probe the controversial tapes.
Narada News, led by its editor-in-chief Matthew Samuel, had earlier released three sets of videos of its sting operation, where top Trinamool Congress (TMC) leaders were allegedly seen accepting bribes from journalists posing as businessmen. The ruling party had dismissed the tapes as 'doctored' and said the 'dirty tricks departments' of its political opponents were behind the 'smear' campaign.
