    Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee publicly defended her party leaders accused of accepting bribes in the Narada FIR registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), and said that they won’t be able to prove anything. “They have registered a case against 13 persons. Hey, why don’t you stand up? They will not be able to prove anything,” she said almost in a voice full of disdain that almost sounded like a challenge. This was the first time she actually defended the accused -- 12 Trinamool leaders and one IPS officer -- after CBI filed the FIR on April 16.
