West Bengal post poll violence: CBI arrests 11 persons in Nandigram murder case

The CBI has arrested 11 persons in Nandigram murder case wherein BJP worker Debabrata Maity was killed allegedly by Trinamool Congress workers during post-poll violence in West Bengal. CBI had filed the case on September 30 following a Calcutta High Court order. Debabrata Maiti, a BJP activist from Chillagram in Nandigram, was killed after the results of the state assembly elections came out. Trinamool was accused of killing him.

CBI is probing the matter and numerous cases have been registered in connection with the post-poll violence in West Bengal. Earlier in August this year, the Calcutta High Court ordered a court-monitored CBI probe into incidents of post-poll violence. The High Court also ordered to set up Special Investigation Teams (SIT) for investigation of relatively less serious crimes.

A seven-member committee set up by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) had earlier looked into the incidents of violence and recommended a court-monitored CBI probe. Several incidents of violence were reported at various places after the announcement of the Assembly poll results on May 2.
