Court-monitored CBI probe into WB poll violence

The Calcutta High Court orders a court-monitored CBI probe into the incidents of post-poll violence in West Bengal.

The Kolkata Police Commissioner, Soumen Mitra, will be part of that special team, the court said.

The BJP had alleged that after the Trinamool’s sweeping victory its goons attacked women members, killed workers, vandalised houses and looted shops and offices belonging to party members.

The Bengal government has said the reports have been greatly exaggerated, with fake videos and images, and most of the incidents of violence that took place around the May 2 counting day happened when the state police were under the control of the Election Commission.
