The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday, 31 December, carried out searches at several places in West Bengal, including the premises of Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Vinay Mishra, in connection with an alleged cattle smuggling case, reports said.

The Indian Express quoted a source that said “two places belonging to Vinay Mishra are being searched out.”

A team of at least ten CBI officials with court-issued search warrants reached two locations in Lake Town and Rashbehari on Thursday in Kolkata. A look-out circular has also been issued by the investigation agency against Mishra, who is the general secretary of the Trinamool Youth Congress and currently untraceable.

Mishra is reportedly an aide of Abhishek Banerjee, the nephew of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee.

Searches are also being conducted by the CBI in West Bengal in connection with an alleged coal theft case.
