Sandeshkhali Row: Calcutta HC Calls For Immediate Arrest of Shahjahan Sheikh, TMC Assures Action | Top Updates

New Delhi: A day after Trinamool Congress national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee blamed the judiciary for tying cops hands from arresting TMC leader Shahjahan Sheikh, the Calcutta High Court on Monday clarified that it had not passed any order to stay or prevent the arrest of Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Sheikh Shahjahan. Sheikh is facing allegations of land grabbing and sexual assault of women in Sandeshkhali.

A division bench of Chief Justice TS Sivagnanam and Justice Hiranmay Bhattacharyya clarified that the Court had only stayed a single judge’s order to constitute a special investigation team (SIT) to probe allegations that Enforcement Directorate (ED) officers were attacked while trying to conduct raids at Shahjahan’s residence last month.

“We will clarify that there is no stay on arrest. A stay on investigation doesn’t mean stay on arrest. There is an FIR registered, he is branded as an accused. He will have to be arrested,” the Court said today.
