After registering FIR against her on Thursday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) launched search operation at premises linked to Trinamool Congress leader Mahua Moitra, including her houses in Kolkata and other places. 

 The CBI has taken the action in connection with the cash-for-query scandal, over which Moitra lost her Lok Sabha membership last year. 

 The CBI move is part of directives from the Lokpal.

The Lokpal has asked the CBI to probe the allegations and submit a report within six months. It also asked the agency to file periodical reports every month.
