Kolkata: Even though the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has started investigation after the order of the Calcutta High Court in the violence that erupted in West Bengal's Birbhum district, 8 people were burnt alive. The woman mafiza has accused Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Bhadu Sheikh of threatening to kill her people. According to the report, the mother of Bibi, the Mafiza of Rampurhat, was also burnt to death in that fire. Now Mafiza Bibi alleges that the goons of TMC leader Bhadu Sheikh are threatening to kill her. Mafiza said that, 'They are saying that when their people come out of jail on bail, they will kill us. He told this openly to me.
I have complained to the police. They have said that they will come.' According to media reports quoting sources, West Bengal Police will provide security to women to reduce the panic prevailing among the people. The atmosphere of fear is clearly visible among the people of the village. In the midst of this fear, a large number of people have also migrated. These people say that, 'If we are getting threats even after the police are temporarily posted there, it does not assure us to return to the village.' Let us inform that on Saturday (March 26, 2022), a team of 30 CBI officers has taken over the investigation of the case from the SIT. The CBI team has reached Rampurhat and now TMC leader Anirul Hussain can also be arrested.
Along with this, the CBI team will demand the custody of 22 accused in police custody. Let us inform that in the past, about a dozen huts were set ablaze in Bogatui village in West Bengal's Birbhum district, allegedly as a protest against the murder of a panchayat officer of the ruling TMC. Eight people, including two children and three women, lost their lives in this. In this case, a public interest litigation was filed demanding a probe by CBI or NIA. The court had taken cognizance of the matter. On Thursday (24 March 2022), the court had reserved the decision after hearing in this matter. Earlier, the Mamta government had demanded the Bengal Police to investigate the matter, which was turned down by the court.
