New Delhi, May 4: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, spokesperson and senior Supreme Court lawyer Gaurav Bhatia knocked the doors of the top court regarding the brutal violence, murders and rapes happening in West Bengal allegedly by Trinamool Congress (TMC) goons and workers.
Bhatia, in his petition filed before the Supreme Court, sought a direction to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to initiate an inquiry into the instances of rampant violence, murders and rapes that have been allegedly carried out by the workers of the TMC across West Bengal. Bhatia sought a direction from the Supreme Court to the West Bengal govt to file a detailed status report as to what FIRs have been registered, arrests made so far, and steps taken by it against the perpetrators of the crimes committed by the accused persons.
The petitioner has filed this present petition as there are alleged brutal murders and the commission of serious offences like murders, rapes, molestations and blatant violence and the complete breakdown of law and order machinery in the state of West Bengal before, during and after the recently concluded assembly elections in West Bengal.
According to the petition, the TMC has dehumanized its political opponents, specifically targeting BJP and its members and workers branding them as fascists, and bigots, Bhatia said. The application was moved so that the apex court court can intervene before the law and order situation deteriorates in West Bengal.
