In Aligarh, two officers of the CID of Bengal Police were in trouble when they reached to nab the accused without informing the captain and the local police. The people of the house accused both the Bengal Police officers in plain uniform of molesting and thrashing the women when the main accused was not present in the house. A complaint has also been lodged in the police station in this matter. The accused is accused of declaring a reward of Rs 11 lakh for bringing Mamta Banerjee’s throat slit. In a 2017 case, the wanted accused and BJP leader Yogesh Varshney had to be given to pick up the CID officers of Bengal Police Shubhashish Dal and Alamgir Islam, who came to Aligarh to nab. A case of molestation and beating of women has been registered against him in Aligarh.
What is the fault of Bengal Police?
The only fault of the Bengal Police officers was that they did not inform the local police captain which was necessary. After informing the outpost incharge of both the bus area, BJP leader Yogesh Varshney was arrested and reached his house to take him to Bengal. When BJP workers came to know, they reached Yogesh Varshney’s house and freed him from the custody of Bengal Police. It is alleged that the Bengal Police was also beaten up after being locked in the room. Meanwhile, on receiving the information, the local police intervened and rescued both of them and took them along. Along with this, the police also took the accused BJP leader into custody at the local police station. Angered by this, BJP leaders started a demonstration to get the Bengal Police booked and gheraoed the police station. The mob misbehaved with the policemen who had come from Bengal, but the local police gave security to both the police officers of Bengal.
Statement in 2017, ruckus in 2021
A case was registered in West Bengal against Yogesh Varshney, a BJP worker from Aligarh’s Thana Gandhi Park area, for making controversial statements in 2017. Due to the warrant in the case against the BJP worker, the Bengal Police had reached the house of the BJP worker with the outpost in-charge of the area, Sandeep Verma, to raid. Senior Superintendent of Police Kalanidhi Naithani issued a statement clarifying that the Bengal Police team has not made any arrests. Now the dispute on which so much ruckus is being seen today, it was also raised in Parliament four years ago. There was also a strong demonstration of TMC workers. But even then BJP had defended its leader and even today the same role is being seen.
