Anubrata Mondal, president of the Trinamool Congress (TMC) unit in Birbhum district, was the prime suspect in the cattle smuggling case that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is probing.

Sources claimed that the alleged cattle smuggling racket was carried by several groups in Bengal along the international border of Bangladesh. The Customs and Border Security Force (BSF) officers also used to get a huge amount of money from the smugglers, said sources, adding that Raghunathgunj and Suti police stations in the area are also on the radar of probe agency.
