Some malign police for political gains: Didi's veiled attack on BJP

Oct 18, 2020 22:13 IST

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, without taking names, said on Sunday that the state police and the administration -- despite toiling hard day in and day out to overcome crises -- were being maligned by some people for political gains. Banerjee, who inaugurated several Durga puja pandals here during the day, was apparently referring to BJP leaders, who had said that the police, in collusion with the government, were trying to suppress evidence in the recent cases of unnatural death of saffron camp leaders. Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has also expressed concern over the law and order situation in frequent tweets, citing incidents of murder, abduction, rape and the recent custodial death of a man, who, the BJP said, was a worker of its party.
