In November 2023, the CBI initiated a PE i.e. preliminary investigation on the orders of the Ombudsman and submitted the report to the Ombudsman, after which these orders have been issued. Nishikant Dubey alleged that Mahua Moitra asked questions in Parliament after taking money from businessman Hiranandani.

The Lokpal has said in his order that the public representative has more responsibility and burden on his shoulders. Corruption is a disease that is adversely affecting the legislative, administrative, social and economic functioning of this democratic country. It is our duty to make every effort to root out that corruption and corrupt practices.

It is worth mentioning that Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee has made Mahua Moitra a candidate for Lok Sabha elections again this time from Krishnanagar seat.
