Execute non-bailable warrants: CPI (M)

Staff Reporter

KOLKATA: The Communist Party of India (Marxist) urged the Election Commission (EC) here on Tuesday to ensure the execution of all non-bailable warrants in the State, including those which had been issued against Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee, in 1994, in connection with an incident of violence. Several police personnel were injured during a clash with Ms. Banerjee's supporters.

A CPI(M) delegation submitted a memorandum to Chief Election Commissioner S.Y. Quraishi, in which it drew attention to the 17-year-old case and urged the Commission to execute all the pending non-bailable warrants impartially.

Speaking to reporters after the meeting with EC officials, senior CPI(M) leader Rabin Deb said that the delegation had appealed for “equal action” to be taken against all pending non-bailable warrants.

The then Deputy Inspector General (Presidency Range), Rachpal Singh, who was injured in the 1994 incident, is a candidate of the Trinamool Congress in the coming Assembly elections.

The Trinamool leadership refuted the existence of any such warrant against the party chief and blamed the CPI(M)-led Left Front government of fabricating charges against her.

“During its 35-year-rule, the Left Front government has framed various Opposition leaders and workers by fabricating false charges against them. Even if the charge against Ms. Banerjee is true, what prevented the ruling government from taking any action against her in the long 17 years?” Mukul Roy, senior Trinamool Congress leader and Union Minister of State for Shipping, said.
