Kolkata, August 28: Two separate Public Interest Cases (PILs) were filed in the Kolkata High Court on Monday over the explosion at an illegal fireworks unit at Duttapukur in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district.
While the first PLI was introduced by the opposition leader in the assembly Suffindu Adhikari, the second petitioner is the state’s BJP leader Rajarshi Lahiri.
Both impeachment bills have been submitted to the Division of Chief Justice TS Sivagnanam and Justice Hiranmayi Bhattacharya.
In both petitions, the petitioners requested an investigation by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) into this matter.
This comes a day after BJP President and Lok Sabha party member Dr. Sukanta Majumdar wrote a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah requesting an NIA investigation in the matter.
In his petition, Adhikari specifically mentioned how the state government had, in an earlier development, resorted to non-cooperation with NIA investigators in the latter’s investigation into communal clashes on the occasion of this year’s Ram Navami processions despite a clear order from the Calcutta High Court to investigate the central agency.
“I have appealed to the court to take note of the lack of cooperation shown by the state administration with the central agency in the past case,” Adhikari said on Monday.
According to him, the effect of the explosion indicates at first glance that the event was not the result of the accumulated raw materials used in ordinary fireworks. “It seems that there may be something more serious about this. So it is only natural that the state government and the state government would hide A
The opposition leader said: “There are a lot of things, and only the investigators of the National Intelligence Agency can reveal the real story after a thorough investigation.”
He also noted that the recovery of stone chips from the site of the explosion indicated that the manufacture of raw bombs may have taken place there under the guise of a pyrotechnics depot.
