“BJP wants to vindicate Anubrata”, CM Mamata Banerjee slams BJP’s fact finding committee!


Slamming BJP’s report on Birbhum violence, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Wednesday (March 30) that it will weaken and interfere with the ongoing CBI investigation into the incident. Speaking to reporters in Darjeeling on BJP fact-finding panel’s report, Banerjee said, “The BJP report on Bogtui killings will weaken and interfere with the probe.”

She went on saying “I condemn this attitude of the saffron party. When an investigation is on there should not be any interference from any (political) party or any side. Investigation must be free and fair. Party interference at this moment is misuse and abuse of power which may distort the probe and people will lose their confidence in the investigation.”

Eight people were killed in the Bogtui village near Rampurhat on March 21, while one more succumbed to injuries a week later after a mob allegedly set houses on fire following the killing of TMC leader Bhadu Sheikh. Banerjee lashed out at the BJP and said the mention of TMC Birbhum district president Anubrata Mondal’s name in the report “clearly shows the vindictive attitude of the BJP”.
