In a significant development, Calcutta High Court on Friday ordered the police to register all cases of the victims of the post-poll violence in West Bengal.
The high Court also directed the state government to ensure medical treatment for all victims and to ensure ration for the affected even if they don’t have ration cards.
West Bengal Chief Secretary has been directed to preserve all documents related to the post-poll violence, the high court said. The high court also reportedly ordered a second autopsy of BJP leader Abhijit Sarkar who was allegedly killed in post-poll violence.
It will be conducted at Command Hospital Kolkata. The high court passed the order after examining the interim report submitted by the National Human Rights Commission in this regard.
The next hearing in post-poll violence cases has been scheduled for July 13th.
