New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed Mamata Banerjee government's plea challenging Calcutta High Court order for a CBI probe into the alleged custodial death of a Trinamool Congress worker in Dhaniakhali police station area in Hooghly district.

"We are not inclined to entertain it," a bench of Justices AK Patnaik and Ranjan Gogoi observed.

The High Court had on May 13 ordered a CBI probe in the case and had directed the CID to hand over all papers and documents to the central agency.

Nasiruddin, a Trinamool Congress worker, was allegedly picked up by officers of Dhaniakhali police station on January 18 from his house in connection with a case regarding registration papers of his newly-bought small transport vehicle.
