Tripura Cong threatens to move court against CID act


Share post:


Agartala: Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) has threatened to move court as the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) issued public advertisement in local dailies identifying 12 Congress workers as criminals.

Leader of the Opposition Ratan Lal Nath here today said the TPCC had organised protest rally on July 11 last against brutal police attack on Congress workers, innocent civilians and journalists on July 10 when the party had launched agitation demanding 85 per cent reservation for Tripura domicile students in Tripura Medical College (TMC) run by the state government.

Nath alleged that Tripura State Rifles (TSR) jawans had charged baton on the agitators following which the Congress workers had retaliated.

Finally, TSR opened indiscriminate fire on the party workers killing an innocent boy.

But last week CID had issued public advertisement in newspapers with sketches of 12 Congress workers who were compelled to retaliate police attack and identified them as miscreants, Nath alleged, adding the Superintendent of Police (CID) Saumitra Dhar, had urged people to provide information to pave the way for the arrest of the 12 ‘miscreants’ involved in the incidents on July 10 and 11, promising secrecy regarding the identity of the informant.

”Dhar has issued the advertisement in the newspapers following instruction from the ruling CPM party and Chief Minister Manik Sarkar who also holding the home portfolio,” Nath said, adding it was a clear proof of the CPM’s anti-democratic attitude and politics because a large number of Congress workers had taken part in a democratic movement opposing the commercialization of medical education in Tripura.

”I do not blame the CID for this, it has merely complied with the dictates of the CPM,” Nath pointed out. (UNI)
