Yesterday, the CBI had questioned three people including Anoop Manjhi alias Lala in the coal smuggling case in Kolkata office. Anoop Manjhi was questioned for the fourth time. The CBI is constantly questioning Lala, but now whether the CBI will inquire after the Supreme Court has given relief. The CBI is in consultation with the legal team in this regard. It is being considered whether the CBI will appeal to the Chief Justice’s court against this instruction of the Supreme Court.
