The High Court directed the Centre to file an affidavit within a month regarding the flight disturbance of Mamata Banerjee

The Calcutta High Court has summoned the Centre’s affidavit in a public interest litigation over Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s flight disturbance. During the hearing of the case on Monday, the court said that the Centre has to submit the affidavit within a month.

Lawyer Biplob Roy Chowdhury filed a public interest litigation in the Calcutta High Court against the Chief Minister’s flight disturbance. He said in the application, although the airport authorities are investigating the matter, the incident also should be investigated separately. He also has mentioned that the incident was not new. In 2016 there was similar kind of problem. He emphasised why such incidents happen again and again should be investigated impartially.

A division bench of Chief Justice Prakash Srivastava and Rajarshi Bharadwaj asked lawyer Biplob Roychowdhury to file an affidavit. After he submits the affidavit, the bench has ordered centre to submit a reply affidavit. The court has directed to give this affidavit within next one month.

Before the Uttar Pradesh polls, the Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee went to Varanasi to campaign for the Samajwadi Party. On the way back, the plane was heavily shaken before landing at the airport. The plane came down 100 meters swaying. The initial investigation report of the incident said that the plane was brought down due to bad weather. The next hearing of the case will be held on April 24.
