Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Dilip Ghosh on Monday asserted that there are “big criminals and scamsters” in West Bengal and claimed that Sheikh Shahjahan is hiding in some TMC leader’s house while reacting to the lookout circular allegedly issued by the ED against him.
“There are big criminals and scamsters here…The incident happened near the Bangladesh border which is a sensitive area…There are inputs that he is hiding in some TMC leader’s house but it’s difficult to take action there,” Dilip Ghosh said.
West Bengal Governor CV Ananda Bose on Sunday expressed strong displeasure over the failure of state police officials to arrest the main accused, Shahjahan Sheikh.
According to Raj Bhavan sources, the Governor issued a strong warning, saying that police should stop the “hide and seek” game since people know “who is the thief and who is the cop.”
“Officers should stop hunting with the hound and running with the hare. Do not sow the wind and reap the whirlwind,” the Governor warned the police.
The Governor has asked the state government to report on the action taken in the ration scam, explain why the accused Sheikh Shahjahan has not been arrested, and clarify whether he is in India or has crossed the borders.
In addition to this, the Governor has also asked the state government to take responsibility for the failure of the law and order machinery in the incident, as well as to fix responsibilities and punish police officers who failed in their duties.
An Enforcement Directorate team was attacked by 800-1000 people armed with lathis, stones, and bricks while they were on a search operation at the premises of Trinamool Congress (TMC) North 24 Parganas Convenor Sahajahan Sheikh earlier this week.
