The CBI on Thursday arrested senior Trinamool Congress leader Anubrata Mondal from his residence in West Bengal's Bolpur for allegedly not cooperating in its probe into a cattle smuggling case, an official said.

Mondal was arrested after almost an hour-long interrogation by a CBI team that arrived at the Birbhum district president's house early on Thursday, he said. "We have arrested him for non-cooperation in the investigation into the cattle smuggling scam," the official told PTI. Mondal was taken to a hospital for a medical check-up, he said.

The TMC leader had twice skipped his scheduled appearance before the central probe agency in the last few days, citing ill-health.
