Kolkata: The CBI on Thursday made the first arrest in the Narada tapes scandal, as it took senior IPS officer SMH Mirza into custody, an agency official said.

He was produced before a special CBI court here after a medical check-up, he said. Mirza was the Superintendent of Police of Burdwan

district when the sting operation was conducted by Mathew Samuels of the Narada News portal.

"Earlier, too, we had questioned him (Mirza) onseveral occasions. Today, we arrested him following another round of questioning. He is one of the key links in Narada tapes scandal," the senior official said.
