NEW DELHI: The Calcutta high court on Thursday ordered court-monitored CBI probe into the cases of alleged post-poll violence in West Bengal.
The order came in response to a set of PILs seeking impartial probe into alleged post-poll violence in West Bengal.
The PILs alleged that people were subjected to assault, made to flee homes and their properties were destroyed as a result of post-poll violence in West Bengal and sought an impartial probe into these and protection of life and liberty.
The high court had ordered the NHRC to constitute an inquiry committee to probe various accusations during the “post-poll violence”.
In its report, the NHRC panel recommended a CBI probe into the “grievous offences like murder and rape” which allegedly took place during the post-poll violence and said the trial should be held outside the state.
The report strongly criticised the Mamata Banerjee-led state government for allegedly failing to stem the political violence that erupted after the Trinamool Congress’s victory in the assembly elections.
