Bail cancellation petition from Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been accepted by the Calcutta High Court on granting bail to Madan Mitra.

Trinamool Congress leader was arrested on December 2014 for his involvement in Saradha scam and he was given bail from lower court on 31 October, 2015.

CBI raised questions on the lower court on account of giving Mitra bail, although High Court has rejected his petition. CBI also argued that the bail was an act of illegality and arbitrariness.

Madan Mitra resigned from as the State Transport Minister on Wednesday.
