CBI Registers FIR Following Calcutta High Court Order in Sandeshkhali Cases

In response to a directive from the Calcutta High Court, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has initiated an FIR against five individuals and unknown others regarding ongoing investigations into land grabs and sexual crimes in Sandeshkhali, West Bengal.

According to sources within the agency, the FIR has been lodged, and investigations are currently underway.

The intervention of the Calcutta High Court prompted the CBI to take charge of inquiries into various alleged offenses within the Sandeshkhali region. These offenses reportedly encompass illicit land acquisitions, as well as incidents of violence and sexual assault against women.

The CBI’s action comes amidst escalating concerns over the deteriorating law and order situation in Sandeshkhali, with reports of widespread criminal activities and exploitation of vulnerable populations.

The registration of the FIR signifies the commencement of a comprehensive investigation by the CBI, aimed at delivering justice to the victims and holding accountable those responsible for the reported crimes.

As the investigation unfolds, authorities anticipate further revelations shedding light on the intricate complexities surrounding the issues confronting Sandeshkhali, emphasizing the urgency of swift and resolute measures to address such concerns.

Previously, the Calcutta High Court had mandated a court-monitored CBI investigation into allegations of sexual assault and land grabbing in Sandeshkhali. Women from Sandeshkhali in the North 24 Parganas district had earlier taken to the streets to protest against the ruling TMC and Shahjahan, accusing him and his associates of egregious acts and land usurpation.

Shahjahan was remanded to CBI custody by the Basirhat court. Following his court appearance, a video surfaced showing Shahjahan in tears, prompting comments from BJP leader Amit Malviya highlighting the apparent shift in his demeanor and warning others involved in criminal activities across Bengal.
