NEW DELHI: The Calcutta high court on Tuesday ordered transfer of probe into attack on ED officials in Sandeshkhali to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI). The court also ordered West Bengal police to hand over Shajahan Sheikh, who is the prime accused in the case, to CBI by 4.30pm.
West Bengal government had constituted a SIT to probe the case.
The investigation in the case was handed over to the CID by the state government from the Basirhat Police after Sheikh’s arrest, who is now in police remand of the CID.
The TMC leader was arrested by the police on February 29, a day after the high court ordered that Sheikh, the main accused in alleged sexual atrocities on women and land grabbing at Sandeshkhali, can be arrested by the CBI, the ED or the West Bengal Police.
