Bhatia of BJP moves SC against Bengal violence, seeks CBI probe

Gaurav Bhatia, in his intervention application filed in a pending 2018 PIL, sought direction to the WB government to file a status report

BJP politician and lawyer Gaurav Bhatia on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court, seeking a CBI investigation into “rampant violence” including murder and rapes allegedly by Trinamool Congress workers across West Bengal “before, during and after the assembly elections”. Bhatia, a senior advocate, in his intervention application filed in his pending 2018 PIL has sought a direction to the state government to file a detailed status report about the FIRs registered, arrests made and steps taken against perpetrators of violence.

“The instant application is being preferred…to bring to the notice of this court, the brutal murders and commission of serious crimes like rape and molestation, blatant violence and the complete breakdown of law and order machinery in West Bengal before, during and after the recently concluded assembly elections in the state,” Bhatia said in his plea.

The Trinamool Congress has swept West Bengal assembly polls by winning over 200 seats in a 294-seat house. Activists of the winning party allegedly unleashed mayhem on workers of the challenger and runner-up BJP following the election result on Monday. The violence, rape, plunder, arson, etc continued unabated on 4 May.

The AITC activists have allegedly killed 18 workers of the BJP in the past two days.
