The CBI on Monday raided Roy’s Greater Kailash-I residence in south Delhi over an alleged bank loan default case, which the national news channel said was part of the probe agency’s “concerted harassment” to muzzle free speech.
The investigation board registered the case against Roy, his wife Radhika a private company and others in connection with money laundering.
