The new Home Secretary A. Bandopadhayay will chair the inquiry committee while Kolkata Police Commissioner Anuj Sharma, Additional Commissioner of Police Javed Shamen and Principal of Vidyasagar College Gautam Kundu are other members of this committee.
Chief Minister Mamta Banerjee told that during the election, the mischievous elements had broken the statue of Goddess Vidhansagar. We have constituted a committee to investigate this incident. The committee will investigate this incident. The chief minister said that two FIRs have already been registered in this case. In this case, 35 people have been arrested.
It is notable that a week before Voting for Seventh Stage, BJP President Amit Shah in West Bengal was doing Roadshow in a portion of North Kolkata. After the violence in the rally, the statue of Ishwarachandra Vidyasagar in college was broken by some elements. Both the Trinamool and the BJP parties have vigorously charged each other for breaking the figure. TMC gave some evidence to the Election Commission and said that there was a BJP worker behind breaking the statue, while BJP attributed TMC workers to violence and subversion.
