A petition has been filed in the Supreme Court by BJP leader and Advocate Gaurav Bhatia seeking directions to the Central Bureau of Investigation to launch an inquiry and investigate the instances of rampant violence, murders and rapes that have been carried out by the workers of TMC across the State of West Bengal.
The petitioner seeks directions to the CBI to file a detailed status report qua the FIR’s registered, arrests made and steps taken by it against the perpetrators of the crime mentioned in the application.
The instant application has been filed in the pending Criminal Writ Petition 185 of 2018, before the Supreme Court named gaurav Bhatia Vs. State of West Bengal & Ors.
That application states that one Avijit Sarkar, in a video uploaded on Facebook, moments before his death, highlighted how the TMC workers not only ransacked his house and NGO, but also mercilessly killed voiceless puppies. Mr. Sarkar in his video specically blamed TMC leaders for the attack and his eventual death.
The application alleges that as per media reports, this violence is directly sponsored by ruling party through its workers who are seeking revenge against the citizenry of the State which has exercised its democratic right of voting for a party other than TMC.
The plea also alleges that the perpetrators of crime who should be booked and punished in accordance with law are being protected by the ruling dispensation.
