In a gruesome mob violence created by TMC activists and armed goons, police sub-inspector Tapas Chowdhury was shot and murdered in broad day light in Garden Reach area by assailants under the direct instigation and presence of of Trinamool Congress leader Mohammed Iqbal alias Munna,
Important minister of TMC government, who claims to be very close to the Chief Minister, Mr. Firhad Hakim recklessly, has tried to put the blame on Congress. Only due to electronic media footage such ill-motivated conspiracy of Mr. Hakim has failed to take root. The TMC minister, who has directly involvement with Mohammed Iqbal alias Munna, had earlier said that he did not believe that Iqbal was in anyway involved in the incident and tried his best to influence the police investigations.
"He has no business to do that," West Bengal governor MK Narayanan said today when asked to comment on the TMC Minister Firhad Hakim's alleged bid to shield TMC councillor & borough Chairman Md Iqbal from arrest for gunning down Special Branch sub-inspector Tapas Chowdhury on February 12.
WBPCC President Prof. Pradip Bhattacharya has demanded immediate order of CBI inquiry in the gruesome murder and said “the State has entered an unprecedented era of lawlessness under the present TMC government. The Chief Minister has failed in all fronts to lead Bengal. Her trusted Ministers are now the source of violence and anarchy in the society. Most importantly the administration and the police forces are not allowed to work impartially. This is a dark time for Bengal.”
