Calcutta HC forms 3-member committee to help poll violence displaced people to return home

-

New Delhi, May 31 (ILNS): The Calcutta High Court today directed the formation of a three-member committee to help those persons displaced in the post violence in the state to go back to their homes.

The committee will comprise nominees from the State Human Rights Commission, National Human Rights Commission and Member Secretary of the West Bengal State Legal Services Authority.

This was decided by the five-judge bench of Acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justices IP Mukherji, Harish Tandon, Soumen Sen and Subrata Talukdar.
The court directed that those who were not being allowed to go back to their homes have to communicate this to the West Bengal Legal Services Authority (WBLSA) on the official email address of the WBLSA. The committee shall then contact the concerned police officer of the locality to ensure that persons displaced by post poll violence in West Bengal are able to return to their houses.
The order was passed in a petition alleging that around 200 persons who were displaced due to the violence continue to face threat to their lives due to which they have not been able to return to their homes.
Earlier, the High Court had warned that serious action would be taken against officers who fail to respond to allegations of post poll violence in West Bengal after the All India Trinamool Congress secured a clean victory in the 2021 state assembly elections. ILNS\SS\SJ\RJ
