Flagging the “custodial loss of life” of a person whom the BJP has claimed to be its employee, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Sunday alleged that the state “politicised” police has “finger in each pie” of governance.
In a letter to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Mr Dhankhar mentioned the loss of life of Madan Ghorai of Kanakpur village in East Midnapore district is yet one more occasion of “dehumanising torture, assault and loss of life” in custody and asserted that such incidents, dotting the state, have assumed “horrendous proportions, impeaching the credibility of rule of legislation”.
“It’s an open secret that politicised police has ‘finger in each pie’ of governance, a aspect of police state,” Mr Dhankhar mentioned.
Madan Ghorai was arrested on September 26 in reference to a kidnapping case.
The police had mentioned he was in judicial custody and never in its custody as claimed by BJP.
“Excessive time you redeem your constitutional oath and implement rule of legislation, guarantee ”democratic governance” within the state, make police and administration ”politically impartial” and accountable,” Mr Dhankhar wrote to the chief minister.
The governor additionally urged the chief minister to handle the problems flagged by him on a precedence foundation.
