The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) registered seven more FIRs on Sunday, taking the total number of cases to 28 in connection with post-poll violence-related allegations of murder and rape, following Calcutta High Court’s order of CBI investigation on August 19.
The CBI team on Sunday visited various districts from North and South Bengal and met the families of the victims and those areas who are displaced. Teams visited different places in South 24 Parganas, Kolkata, Birbhum and Cooch Behar, among others. CBI officials saw and examined the houses of the complainants and interrogated them. Videos were recorded and photos were taken by the team.
Meanwhile, West Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh on Sunday said that the TMC Supremo Mamata Banerjee should try to save her party’s minister hinting at their alleged involvement in post-poll violence. “Mamata Banerjee knows what CBI is and during her opposition days she always demanded CBI probe and now to hide the crime by her party men she is saying that CBI probe is not needed,” said Ghosh.
