Massive ABVP rally in Kolkata to demand implementation of NRC and CBI probe against alleged Police brutality

A saffron surge has been witnessed in the state in recent times. It has given Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee plenty to worry about.

The ABVP has taken to the streets of Kolkata on Friday to demand the implementation of NRC in West Bengal and demand a CBI probe into the death of two ABVP karyakartas at the hands of the Police.

Earlier in September, the Police had opened fire on students protesting against the appointment of Urdu teachers at Dwaribhit High School in North Dinajpur district’s Islampur. Rajesh Sarkar and Taposh Barman had died as a result.

Media-in-charge of ABVP Mumbai, Varada Marathe, has said on Twitter that the ABVP won’t take the ‘human right violation’ by the West Bengal government lying down.

The rally was also attended by Rajesh Sarkar and Taposh Barman’s family members, he said. “We have been demanding from the very beginning that the perpetrators of the incidents have to be arrested. And until another post-mortem is conducted on the victims’ bodies, our protests would continue.” Biswas also claimed that no compensation has been awarded to the family of the victims and no action has been taken against the Police responsible for the deaths.
