It has been two days since Arnab Roy, an officer on duty during the second phase of Lok Sabha elections in the West Bengal went missing. It is rather shocking that the state government led by Mamata Banerjee is yet to find the whereabouts of the officer.

However, Anisha Jash, wife of the missing officer Arnab Roy has now started to appeal to every citizen to find her husband who went suspiciously missing from duty on April 18th from Bipradas Choudhury Polytechnic College of Nadia, West Bengal. Interestingly, Roy was the in charge of the EVMs and VVPATs.

“I do not want anything except my husband right now and I shall go to the last extent to find him. I earnestly request everyone to share my post. I want my husband back,” wrote Anisha Jash in her Facebook post.

The state of West Bengal under Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has been notoriously known for political violence and alleged electoral malpractice through intimidations and violence against political opponents. The law and order situation in West Bengal seems to be out of control as it is evident from the manner in which an on-duty officer appointed by the election commission has been missing while performing his duty.

As the second phase of the Lok Sabha elections commenced on Thursday, reports of rampant political violence and poll malpractice have been pouring in from West Bengal. Among this, a report has surfaced that Hindu residents of a Muslim dominated village have been barred from voting in the Raiganj constituency in the state.

On Thursday, during the second phase of Lok Sabha polls, massive violence erupted in West Bengal causing apprehensions about the free and fair elections in the state. Chopra in Darjeeling constituency had witnessed widespread violence, where miscreants tried to prevent voters from casting their votes. Locals came out in protest of this and blocked the highway, and security forces had to lob tear gas shells and do lathi charge on the people to disperse them.

In another incident, a 22-year-old BJP worker Sishu Pal Shahish was killed and his body was found hanging on a tree in West Bengal’s Purulia.

The state government and the media ecosystem backing Mamata Banerjee has been silent on the issue who otherwise outrage on the independence of the institutions. The Lutyens liberal, who are often so quick to target the ruling establishment for their alleged intrusion into political institutions have deliberately chosen to ignore the brutalities and subversion of democratic principles inflicted by the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal.
