Kolkata, 26 August: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) team, probing the post-poll violence in West Bengal, is not confident of getting the cooperation of the state police for raids and other operations. Therefore, now in terms of security, four company central forces have been deployed for the CBI in Kolkata, which will be present in every action with the central investigating agency.
CBI officials have started investigation into the post-poll violence from Thursday. State Police representatives and Central Security Force personnel are also with them, but after the incident of attack on the Human Rights Commission team in Jadavpur, now the Central Government does not want to take the risk.
In such a situation, four companies of paramilitary forces have been deployed for the security of the CBI team. The paramilitary forces will be divided into four parts to provide security to four teams of CBI. Of these, three have been deployed in South Bengal and one in North Bengal.
According to sources, out of the four, two companies have been deployed in Kolkata, one company in Durgapur and one company in Cooch Behar.
As the law and order situation in the state continues to be questioned, the Centre’s move is a clear indication that Delhi does not trust the law and order situation in the state.
