On Tuesday, the Supreme Court of India issued a notice to the West Bengal State Government in response to a joint petition filed by the brother of a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker. The petition asked the court to tell a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to look into claims that Trinamool Congress (TMC) party members killed BJP party members.
The joint petition was filed by the brother of the deceased BJP worker, who alleged that his brother was killed by TMC activists. The petitioner claimed that the state government has failed to provide justice and protection to the victims and their families. He also alleged that the state government has been protecting the accused, who are affiliated with the TMC party.
The Supreme Court, after hearing the petition, issued notice to the West Bengal State Government and directed them to respond to the allegations made in the petition within four weeks. The court also sought a detailed report on the steps taken by the state government to provide justice and protection to the victims and their families.
The issue of political violence in West Bengal has been a contentious one, with both the TMC and the BJP accusing each other of using violence as a means to gain political power. The state has seen a rise in political violence in recent years, with several incidents of killings and clashes reported between supporters of the two parties.
In response to the petition, the Supreme Court sent a notice to the state government. This is seen as a big step forward in trying to stop political violence in West Bengal. It remains to be seen how the state government responds to the notice and the allegations made in the petition and what actions they take to address the issue of political violence in the state.
