2 BJP workers killed in WB: Plea before SC for SIT/CBI probe


New Delhi, May 18 (ILNS): A writ petition, seeking a Special Investigation Team and/or a CBI investigation into the killing of two BJP workers in West Bengal, came before the Supreme Court today.

The Vacation Bench of Justices Vineet Saran and BR Gavai issued notice and posted the matter for consideration on next Tuesday.

The petition alleged that the killings were committed by the members of Trinamool Congress on May 2, when the Assembly election results were declared.

The petitioners are relatives of the two victims, one is the brother of Avijit Sarkar (35), who was the vice-president of a BJP-backed trade union and the other is the widow of Haran Adhikari, who was a BJP booth worker. They have moved the apex court for an independent probe by CBI or a court-monitored Special Investigation Team (SIT).

Senior Advocate Mahesh Jethmalani appeared for the petitioners. He said: “This is a very serious case. There are two eye-witnesses. The state is taking no action, when two people have been killed brutally. This is a matter, which requires probe and transfer to CBI or an SIT.

“The activists, who were murdered, belonged to BJP and it (the murder) was encouraged by the state administration,” Mr Jethmalani submitted.

The Advocate further made a prayer for video-recording of the post-mortem of the dead body of Avijit Sarkar, which has not been cremated so far. The Bench said that it cannot consider this prayer ex-parte. ILNS\KR\SJ\RJ
