New Delhi: Supreme Court Justice Indira Banerjee has dissoceted herself from hearing a petition filed by the family members of two BJP workers killed in the post-assembly election violence in West Bengal. After Justice Banerjee distanced herself from the hearing, the matter will now come up for hearing before a bench which will not include Justice Banerjee. Let us tell you that, Justice Banerjee is a resident of Kolkata and said that she does not want to hear the case.
It may be recalled that in West Bengal, violence took place during the counting of votes in which two BJP workers were killed. The family members of the party workers have filed a petition in the Supreme Court seeking an independent agency like SIT or CBI under the supervision of the court. The matter was heard before a bench of Justices Indira Banerjee and MR Shah on Thursday. As soon as the hearing of the case began, Justice Banerjee said she could not hear the matter. The matter should be posted before another bench for hearing.
In West Bengal, two victims of gang rape in the post-poll violence have also filed a petition in the Supreme court seeking a SIT or a CBI probe into the case. Both are seeking the court to make them parties in the main case. However, the petition is yet to come up for hearing.
