Rare Arrests Led To Shooting In Narkeldanga


Kolkata: Seldom do the police top brass act against cops who allow illegal constructions and it is even rarer that departmental inquiries are ordered after the arrest of local promoters. But these very measures at Narkeldanga reportedly cut the money flow to small-time promoters, which in turn, led to the attack on Sk Kamruddin on Sunday.

Lalbazar has now ordered the divisional DCs to start proceedings against officers if they failed to act on complaints against illegal buildings.

After the shooting on Sunday, the Narkeldanga police and the anti-rowdy squad arrested two accused, Saddam and Hakim alias Arshad, though main suspect, small-time builder Takla Alam, and his co-promoters, Jalal Hafiz and Farid, are still at large.
