It’s a big shock to Mamata Banerjee’s government from the Kolkata High court. The state government has appealed for a recall of the court order on post-election violence. The apex court dismissed the government’s appeal. It said the recall could not be made in the light of ongoing investigations into post-poll violence incidents in the NHRC.
Meanwhile, it is learned that a petition has been filed in the Supreme Court on behalf of the victims of the violence that erupted after the West Bengal Assembly elections. However, Judge Indira Banerjee was out of the case. Being a Bengali, she was said to be stepped down from this case. In this regard, the case will be transferred to another bench.
As per the ANI, the Five judges bench of the Calcutta High Court dismissed the petition to recall or stay its June 18th order directing National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to constitute a committee for examining complaints and submitting a report to them.
