CBI Summons Lawyer Jai Ananth Dehadrai in 'Cash for Query' Case Linked to TMC's Mahua Moitra

Kolkata: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has summoned lawyer Jai Ananth Dehadrai to appear before the agency on January 25 in connection with the 'cash for query' case involving Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mahua Moitra. Moitra was expelled from the Lok Sabha last month based on the Ethics Committee's reports, which accused her of accepting cash for posing questions in Parliament. The committee found serious misconduct on her part and recommended her expulsion from the Seventeenth Lok Sabha.

The committee's report highlighted Moitra's alleged acceptance of cash and gifts from businessman Darshan Hiranandani in exchange for asking critical questions of the government. It called for an intense, legal, institutional inquiry by the Government of India into her conduct. The committee also advised a government investigation into the 'money trail' of cash transactions between Moitra and Hiranandani, characterizing it as 'quid pro quo.' The report, adopted on November 9, stressed the need for a thorough investigation into the financial transactions between Moitra and Hiranandani, urging the government to conduct the inquiry in a legal, institutional, and time-bound manner.

Moitra's expulsion triggered support from the opposition, with senior leaders such as Sonia Gandhi rallying behind her. In a show of solidarity, opposition members, standing outside Parliament with Moitra, criticized the Modi government, with Moitra accusing them of opposing women empowerment and being unable to handle power and authority.
