Bengal CID summons BJP's Suvendu Adhikari in his bodyguard's mysterious death case
Kolkata/IBNS: West Bengal Criminal Investigation Department (CID) Saturday summoned BJP's Leader of the Opposition (LoP) Suvendu Adhikari in connection with the probe into the mysterious death of Adhikari's security personnel Suvabrata Chakraborty, officials said.
According to sources in the state probe agency, BJP MLA from Nandigram, Suvendu Adhikari, has been asked to join the investigation at Bengal CID headquarters at Bhabani Bhavan in Kolkata at 11 am. on Monday (Sept 6).
CID took over the probe on July 12 and has already quizzed multiple persons.
Earlier on Oct 13 in 2018, the then Bengal Transport Minister Suvendu Adhikari's bodyguard, Suvabrata Chakraborty, was found in a critical condition with a bullet wound in his head inside his room at a police barrack in East Medinipur's Contai.
Chakraborty was rushed to a hospital where he succumbed to his injury days later.
At that time, police had indicated that it could be a case of suicide though neither a conclusion nor any major development was noticed in the investigation.
Recently, two-and-half years after the incident, Suvabrata Chakraborty's wife, Suparna Kanjilal Chakraborty, lodged a complaint with Contai Police Station demanding proper investigation into her husband's mysterious death, based on which local police re-registered the case.
East Medinipur district police sources said an FIR had been registered against 'unknown miscreants' under IPC sections 302 (murder) and 120B (criminal conspiracy).
