New Delhi: National Commission for Scheduled Castes Chairman Arun Halder has written a letter to President Draupadi Murmu demanding President’s rule in West Bengal. Referring to the recent incidents in Sandeshkhali in North Pargana district, he has demanded imposition of President’s rule in the state with immediate effect.

He wrote in the letter that the commission team headed by him visited Sandeshkhali on 15 February. This team included Dr. Anuj Bala and Subhash Ramnath Pradhi. The report received there is heart-wrenching. In Sandeshkhali, incidents of rape, torture and land grabbing of Scheduled Caste and Tribe women by Shahjahan Sheikh and his henchmen have come to light. It seems as if the West Bengal government has tried to suppress these things. They are not getting any help from the government and administration.

Victims living in an environment of fear and terror

He has written in the letter that the victims of Sandeshkhali are living in an atmosphere of fear and terror. 80 percent of the population in Sandeshkhali belongs to Scheduled Castes and Tribes. Therefore, the government should intervene in this matter and impose President’s rule in the state with immediate effect.

Let us tell you that in Sandeshkhali, a large number of women accused the senior Trinamool Congress leader Shahjahan Shaikh and his supporters of forcefully grabbing land and sexual harassment. People associated with Trinamool leader Shahjahan Sheikh had allegedly attacked Enforcement Directorate officials who had gone to conduct a raid in connection with the ration scam, after which Shahjahan is absconding. Women are demanding arrest of Shahjahan.

National Commission for Protection of Child Rights also issued notice

Meanwhile, the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) took cognizance of the news of a child being thrown by miscreants in Sandeshkhali and issued a notice to the district administration asking for an early investigation into the matter. In a notice sent to the District Magistrate of North 24-Parganas district, NCPCR said that it has taken cognizance of the tragic incident of attack on a female resident by a group of miscreants in the presence of police officials. The Commission said that the news reported that the miscreants forcibly entered his house and beat him up, and the shocking thing is that they snatched his newborn daughter and brutally threw it away.
