The sting operation was conducted by Matthew Samuels, the CEO of Narada News.

The tapes show Samuels, posing as a businessman, purportedly offering money to the TMC leaders. Both the ED and CBI are jointly probing the case.

The CBI had booked 12 top TMC leaders, including MPs and West Bengal ministers, and an IPS officer in connection with the case.

Roy, who was a close confidant of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee before he broke ranks with the Trinamool Congress (TMC), was called at the agency headquarters where a team of officials from Kolkata had come to examine him, they said.

He had joined the BJP months after being named as an accused in the case by the CBI on April 16, 2017.
