Kolkata, April 10: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Saturday said her government will initiate a CID probe into the incident.
She questioned the central forces’ firing on voters in self-defence in Cooch Behar saying there is no video footage or any other proof to substantial claims of the central forces.
She held Union Home Minister Amit Shah completely responsible for the firing that claimed four lives.
According to reports, there were more than 400 people in front of booth no 126 at Amtali in Jor Patki village in Sitalkuchi since the morning. The central forces tried to disperse the mob but they rushed in and tried to snatch the firearms from the forces that prompted the force to open fire.
The Election Commission (EC) has asked for a report from special police observer over the incident.
