Kolkata, Apr 2 UNI | 4 months ago

Dissatisfied with the progress of investigation into the Sagar Ghosh murder case at Parui village, a single-judge bench of Calcutta High Court today asked the state police director general to file a report by seven days.

Justice Dipankar Dutta issued the directive after the director general GMP Reddy sent a report on the probe before the bench. The matter will come up for further hearing on Monday next. Annoyed with report of the CID, the court on Feb 14 asked the state government to remove investigating officer Biswajit Chatterjee and directed Reddy to set up a special investigating team to probe the incident.

Reddy formed a four-member team and informed the court of the names of the investigating officials. Sagar Ghosh, father of rebel Trinamool Congress leader Hriday Ghosh, was shot dead in his residence at Parui village in Birbhu district in July last. Several Trinamool Congress leaders, including Birbhum district Trinamool Congress chief Anubrata Mondal are implicated in the case.
