  • Jethmalani opposed this and said that it would be against the order of the Supreme Court. The government and the police show speed only after the notice of the Supreme Court.
  • Dutta said on the contention that the Supreme Court has only issued the notice. He has not ordered to stop the investigation. The Supreme Court may or may not transfer the case. Till then the state police is probing the matter. In such a situation, a person from the state police should be present there while taking the sample.

Police investigation and fear in court also mentioned

  • Dutta said that 11 attempts were made to record the statement of Abhijeet’s family, notices were sent but his statement could not be taken.
  • Jethmalani said that Abhijeet’s mother is scared to talk to the police. The reason for this is that even before his signature was taken and it was used for some other purpose.

Earlier on July 2, the Calcutta High Court had held that violence took place in Bengal after the assembly elections. The court had held the Mamta government wrong and said that when people were being killed and minors were being raped, the government was denying it and it was wrong. The Bengal government has failed to create an atmosphere of trust among those who have suffered the brunt of the violence.
