Kolkata, February 22

Rujira Naroola Banerjee, wife of TMC MP and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee, has claimed she is not aware of the reason for her being called for questioning by the CBI or the matter under investigation by the agency.

Responding to the CBI notice to her on Sunday, Rujira asked the CBI team probing a coal theft case to visit her residence on Tuesday. CBI personnel went to her Kalighat home on Sunday, but failed to find her there.

In a letter to CBI officer Umesh Kumar, Rujira wrote she was in receipt of the notice dated February 21 which was delivered when she was unavailable. Writing on her own letterhead, Rujira said though she was unaware of the reason for her being called for questioning or the subject matter of the probe, CBI personnel might visit her residence between 11 am and 3 pm on February 23. — TNS
