HC blasts Bengal Govt.

A committee constituted by the NHRC had on Wednesday submitted a report before the High Court on cases of alleged human rights violations in post-poll violence in West Bengal.

In a major embarrassment to the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government, the Calcutta High Court has instructed the police to register all the cases pertaining to post-poll violence in the state.

The Calcutta HC, after reading National Human Rights Commission report on post-poll violence, has directed the police to register cases in all matters which have either been reported to it or have been placed before NHRC or any other authority/Commission, get statements of victims recorded under Section 164 of CrPC.

Acknowledging the violence, the HC also finds Mamta Banerjee Government on a wrong foot and in denial mode, when people were dying and even minor girls were not spared.
