New Delhi:

Trinamool’s Abhishek Banerjee’s wife Rujira, being investigated in coal case, was today stopped from boarding an international flight at the Kolkata airport.

According to sources, Rujira reached Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport with her two children around 7 am to board a flight to Dubai, UAE.

The lawyer also said that she had informed the ED, providing her travel plan details and a copy of her tickets a few days back.

“Then, there was no response, but now she was stopped. She has now returned home. We are mulling legal options,” he said.

Repeated attempts to get a version from the airport and ED authorities did not yield a response.

Rujira Banerjeehas been questioned several times by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with a multi-crore coal smuggling scam.

“She was stopped at the immigration, citing a lookout notice issued by the ED in a case. There is a court order, which has clearly said that there is no bar on her travelling abroad,” one of her lawyers told PTI.

The probe agencies allege that illegal mining was carried out in leasehold mines of Eastern Coalfields at Kunustoria and Kajora near Asansol in West Bengal. Investigations have hinted at financial transactions of ₹ 1,300 crore, the bulk of which went to several influential people.

The probe has revealed that the money was deposited in foreign bank accounts of these influential people through hawala.
