Former IPS officer Bharti Ghosh makes a shocking revelation: says Mamata Banerjee transfers officers if BJP gains grounds

In an exclusive interview to India Today, former IPS officer Bharti Ghosh made a sensational claim against West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee alleging that Banerjee “transfers officers if BJP gains ground” and that Ghosh was shunted out due to the rise of BJP in Sabang by-elections held in 2017.

Bharti Ghosh, who was once considered a very close aide of Mamata Banerjee is the first IPS officer to resign from service in Mamata’s regime. She resigned in protest against the state government.

While talking to India Today she alleged that she has been falsely accused and hooked in an extortion and a forgery case as she had refused to capitulate and had conducted a free and fair election in 2017. As a result of which she was heckled, tormented and wrongly accused of misusing her administrative position. Her husband too was arrested in connection with the case.

Ghosh, lambasting at the state government and their unfair codes, demanded to know that after serving for 26 years and being revered with rewards and token of appreciation what suddenly led the government to characterize her as immoral and disloyal? She stated that the mere fact that she refused to bow down to the parties whims and act accordingly irked the bigwigs of the party.

The career graph of Ghosh, who was earlier the superintendent of police of West Midnapore district was completely dishevelled after the Sabang by-elections conducted in 2017, claimed the IPS officer. Soon after the by-election, in December 2017, in a major reshuffle in IPS cadre in West Bengal, Ghosh was transferred to the post of the commandant of the third battalion of the state armed police. Ghosh’s transfer came following allegations from a section of Trinamool Congress leadership that she had worked for the BJP in the Sabang by-election held last month.

Later, early this year, West Bengal CID raided the residences of Ghosh and police officers apparently close to her, for their alleged involvement in misconduct and extortion from civilians, and launched a nationwide hunt as she was reportedly declared missing by the CID.

In the latest accusation against the former IPS officer, it was reported that the West Bengal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has submitted the charge sheet against former IPS officer Bharati Ghosh, accusing her of extortion, forgery and criminal conspiracy, and labelled her an absconder.

Not knowing what future holds for her, most ironically though, when in good terms, Ghosh had once described Mamata in a public meeting as the mother of ‘Jangalmahal’ (the former Maoist-dominated districts of West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia) for ushering in peace in the area.
