The Supreme Court refused to stay the May 18 order of the Calcutta High Court, which had said that the TMC leader could be questioned by the CBI and the ED.

A vacation bench of Justice JK Maheshwari and Justice PS Narasimha said that the Calcutta High Court order was fair and balanced. However, the fine has been imposed more. The bench has stayed the fine of Rs 25 lakh imposed on Abhishek. Now this case will be heard in July.

The Supreme Court had changed the judge of the High Court

On April 28, the Supreme Court ordered the Chief Justice of the Calcutta High Court to refer Abhishek Banerjee’s petition to a new bench. Reason, the judge hearing the case had given a TV interview. Justice Amrita Sinha heard Banerjee’s case afresh. He rejected his request on 18 May. The TMC leader then challenged the order in the apex court.
