Supreme Court must dismiss appeal of Bengal on post poll violence with cost

The Bengal Government has appealed against the judgement of the five-judge bench of the Calcutta High Court which had given the investigation of the post poll violence in the state to Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Special Investigation Team (SIT). This judgement had been given by the Calcutta High Court after relying on the observations of the National Human Rights Commission. The Calcutta High Court, while hearing a bunch of petitions for unbiased investigation in the post poll violence, had directed the National Human Rights Commission to form a committee, investigate independently and submit a report to the court. It had been done because the petitions were filed to seek justice in the first of its kind of post poll violence where goons of the ruling party had leached violent attacks on people who had voted for the opposition parties and the Hindu community in particular. This violence was indirectly supported by the government in such a way that over 60% of the complaints of the said violence were not even lodged as FIRs by the state police. Violence was so drastic that many people from the Hindu community and members of opposition parties had to flee from their state and were forced to take shelter in the neighbouring state of Assam.
