Judicial probe into death of CPI(M) MLA

Kolkata Bureau

KOLKATA: The West Bengal government on Saturday ordered a judicial inquiry into the death of CPI (Marxist) MLA Mostafa Bin Quasem at the MLA Hostel here.

“The Chief Secretary will decide the terms of reference of the one-member judicial commission,” Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee told reporters here. “He was our MLA,” she remarked.

Family members of Mostafa Bin Quasem, who had jumped to death here on May 29, lodged a formal complaint with the police alleging that he had not committed suicide and sought a judicial inquiry.

Mostafa Bin Quasem is believed to have committed suicide by jumping from the third floor of the MLA hostel, but his family members refused to accept it suspecting foul-play behind his death.

His son, Masum Bin Quasem, had told mediapersons earlier this week that his entire family believed that Mostafa Bin Quasem had not committed suicide and alleged that his death was “pre-planned”.

“His death was pre-planned….The fall was not the cause of his death,” Mr. Masum Bin Quasem had said.
