New Delhi: The violence case that spread after the Bengal elections reached the Supreme Court on Tuesday. BJP spokesperson and lawyer Gaurab Bhatia has filed a petition in the apex court demanding a CBI probe into the post-poll violence, killings and rapes in Bengal. Meanwhile, an NGO has filed an application in the Supreme Court demanding the imposition of presidential rule in West Bengal. The petition said the state’s constitutional infrastructure had been completely destroyed. And in this time of crisis, it is necessary to impose presidential rule in the state using section 357.
Bhatia said in his petition that the Trinamool Congress was targeting those people in the state who did not vote for the Trinamool Congress in the Ekushey elections. Referring to the murder case of BJP activist Abhijit Sarkar, Bhatia said the incident proved that there was a naked dance of democracy in West Bengal under the umbrella of the grassroots.
The petition also said that shortly before his death, Abhijit Sarkar had said live on Facebook that grassroots thugs had not only killed him but also vandalized his house and killed his pet dogs.
An NGO called Indic Collective Trust has filed a petition in the Supreme Court alleging that Trinamool Congress workers have inflicted massive atrocities on Bharatiya Janata Party and other opposition workers since the May 2 census in Bengal. The law and order situation in the state has completely broken down. The petition seeks the formation of an Investigation Team (SIT) headed by a retired Supreme Court judge. The petition calls on the central government to deploy CRPF and troops in West Bengal.
