several incidents of violence have been reported at various places after Assembly poll results

In a latest development, the Central Bureau of Investigation has detained two people from Nadia district and registered 21 FIRs in connection with the West Bengal post-poll violence. For the unversed, several incidents of violence have been reported at various places after the announcement of the Assembly poll results on May 2.
 
West Bengal Chief Minister and Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee alleged that in the ongoing CBI probe into post-poll violence, Bharatiya Janata Party workers are accompanying CBI officials to villages.
 
“In post-poll violence, five BJP workers and 16 TMC workers had died. We have no problem with CBI, but why are they taking BJP leaders with them to villages? National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) and all other commissions have become political, all their members are from BJP,” she said.
 
Earlier this month, Calcutta High Court ordered a court-monitored CBI probe into the incidents of post-poll violence in the state. The High Court also ordered to set up Special Investigation Teams (SIT) for investigation and senior officers from the state's cadre will be a part of the team.
