PIL accuses Nandigram OC of inaction, filing false FIRs

A public interest litigation (PIL) filed against officer-in-charge of Nandigram police station, Debasish Chakraborty, has accused him of failing to protect the residents in the area from violence since December, 2007.
Asit Roy, a social activist and a member of the All India Legal Aid Forum, today filed the PIL in which he alleged that Chakraborty had also implicated ordinary villagers in false FIRs. Roy sought the court’s order directing the state government to remove Chakraborty from his post after a departmental inquiry proved his “inhuman and unconstitutional actions.” He also demanded a CBI probe against Chakraborty.
The petition accused the OC of ignoring the interests of the people and instead acting as an agent of a political party. Roy also accused Chakraborty of instigating violence on several occasions in which villagers, including those from the minority community, had allegedly suffered. The petition also claimed that the villagers who had organised a movement against land acquisition were attacked by anti-socials with Chakraborty’s help.
The petition said the police did not take proper steps to provide security to them.
