Moments after Mamata Banerjee's convoy left, a CBI team of around seven-eight officers arrived to question Abhishek Banerjee's wife Rujira Banerjee. Rujira Banerjee wrote to the CBI yesterday that she was "unaware of the reason of questioning" but said she as ready for questioning today. "Though I am unaware of the reason for me being called for questioning or the subject matter of the investigation, you may visit my residence as per your convenience between 11 AM and 3 PM tomorrow, i.e. 23 February, 2021," she wrote. Abhishek Banerjee alleges that he is being targeted by the BJP ahead of the state elections and shared the notice the CBI left for his wife at their home on Sunday.
