Calcutta High Court orders CID probe in Tapas Pal case
Calcutta High Court today ordered a Criminal Investigation Department (CID) probe in Tapas Pal case asking for registration of an FIR against him within 72 hours.
Earlier, Tapas Pal a Member of Parliament (MP) from Bengal's Krishnanagar, who has been advised to take complete bed rest after he complained of a sudden increase in blood pressure, had kick started a controversy when he was caught on tape exhorting party workers to kill Communist Party of India (Maoist) (CPI-M) activists even as he himself asserted he will gun down his rivals and let loose his "boys" to rape their women. After his comments created huge uproar in the country, the TMC MP had to tender to his party and the media an apology.
The controversy led to protests against Pal by various activists and other party workers.
On July 9, the Calcutta High Court while hearing a writ petition filed against Pal by Samit Sanyal, questioning that within periphery of our constitution and other law particularly like CrPC whether it is permissible under law for Pal to make such comments, has pulled up the West Bengal Government for maintaining silence over Pal's derogatory comments against women.
