Kolkata: West Bengal Transport Minister Madan Mitra, arrested on December 12 last year in connection with Saradha scam by CBI, on Friday filed a bail plea in the Alipore District and Sessions Judge's Court.
The bail prayer was filed by defence counsel on behalf of Mitra.
The matter would come up for hearing on February 11 on completion of the statutory period of 60 days within which the prosecution would have to file the charge sheet.
Mitra is now being held in the Alipore Correctional Home.
Two days back, the same court had granted bail to another accused in the Saradha scam, Srinjoy Bose, on the ground that even after completing 60 days in custody, no charge sheet was filed against him.
