Bengal Poll: EC Removes Shantipur’s OC


Krishnanagar: Shantipur’s Officer-in-charge, Parthapratim Roy has been removed from his post at the Shantipur police station much before the election, scheduled on April 21.

Parthapratim has been arrested as no action was taken by the police when Shantipur’s Congress candidate Arindam Bhattacharya’s car was heckled and broken.

Congress candidate Arindam Bhattacharya’s car was attacked and heckled by a group of criminals on Monday. To protest this, followers of CPM and Congress had blocked the road. They even lodged a complaint with the Election Commission.

According to sources, Election Commission decided to take immediate action. It gave responsibility to the ADG of the area to take legal action against the OC. The commission removed him from his post on Tuesday.
