Calcutta HC asked for response from CBI and Center on Mamata govt's appeal

Kolkata: The Supreme Court has sought a response from the CBI, the Election Commission and the Central government in the violence that erupted after the West Bengal assembly elections. The Supreme Court has taken this step on a petition filed by the state government. The apex court will now hear the matter next on October 7. The Supreme Court has accepted a petition filed by the West Bengal government challenging the Calcutta High Court order directing a CBI probe into post-election violence cases.

Justice Vineet Saran and Justice Anirudh Bose said the state's PIL becomes a case of issuing notices to petitioners. Based on this, the High Court had ordered a CBI inquiry. Advocate Kapil Sibal had demanded a stay on the proceedings of the CBI. On this, the court said that we will not issue any order without listening to the other party. In a major setback to Mamata Banerjee's government, a five-judge bench of the High Court had ordered a CBI probe. At the same time, the Calcutta High Court had also ordered the constitution of an SIT to investigate incidents of violence.

The Mamata government in Bengal had opposed the CBI probe into the incidents of violence. The High Court had ordered a CBI probe into the murder, rape cases during post-election violence in Bengal. It has also constituted a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate other crimes. The investigation into the CBI and SIT is being conducted under the supervision of the High Court. The court ordered CBI to submit its inquiry report within 6 weeks.
