Bengal CID to probe carcass, rotten meat racket
Kolkata, May 9 (IBNS): West Bengal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) is all set to begin probe into recently busted carcass and rotten meat supply racket in the state, officials said on Wednesday.
A senior official of CID told IBNS that the state probe agency has sought all documents and progress reports, relating to state police's ongoing investigation into the carcass meat racket, from local investigators.
"A Special Investigation Team (SIT), comprising of the officers from Budge Budge Police Station and Diamond Harbour Police District, is currently investigating the case and we have asked them to provide us all documents and progress reports relating to it," the official said.
Earlier on Tuesday, West Bengal government announced to constitute an eight-member high-level committee, led by state's Chief Secretary, to probe the issue.
Recently, cops from Budge Budge Police Station unearthed a state-wide carcass and rotten meat supply chain and have arrested 12 persons, including a CPI-M leader, in connection with it so far while one of the kingpins of the racket, Kaosar Ali Dhali, is still absconding.
