Kolkata: Mamta Banerjee said on Wednesday that action will be taken under the law against those responsible for the killings in Sheetalkuchi in Cooch Behar district. She met the families of those killed during the action of central forces in Sheetalkuchi on Wednesday. She said that these killings will be investigated and the culprits will be punished.
Reaching Mathabhanga on Wednesday, Mamata Banerjee lamented that she could not meet the next of kin of the deceased earlier owing to a 72-hour ban on entry of political leaders in Cooch Behar, where four people were gunned down by CISF personnel, who fired in “self-defence”, on April 10.
The West Bengal chief minister assured justice to the kin of the victims and said, “The West Bengal government will support all victims of political violence including Sitalkuchi victims’ family…Whoever did this [violence], we will bring them to justice.”
Mamata Banerjee said she had no public meeting scheduled in Cooch Behar’s Mathabhanga but had gone to visit the families of the victims.
“One victim’s wife is pregnant. One victim’s wife has a young kid. Whoever did this, we will bring them to justice… The Bengal government will support all victims of political violence including the families of Sitalkuchi firing victims,” Mamata Banerjee said.
