National Commission For Women Says Mamata Banerjee Removed Evidence Of Dhulagarh Riot

Published on 8 February, 2017 at 5:29 pm By

The National Commission for Women (NCW) has criticised the West Bengal government and said that the state government had tried to remove all the tell-tale evidences of arson and loot in Dhulagarh riots.

The team, led by NCW member Sushma Sahu, spoke to people for three hours and took stock of the situation. Later they also met the commissioner of police of the Howrah Commissionerate. Colonel Diptangshu Choudhury who had filed a petition at the NCW against the riots, also visited the place.

A series of riots in Bengal, all of which were against Hindus – showing the draconian rule of Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government – have gone mostly unreported in the media.

For three days starting from December 13, Dhulagarh, a small town 25 kms west of Kolkata, witnessed communal clashes.

While Hindus of the town were busy with Margashirsha Poornima festivities, the Muslims celebrated Milad-un-Nabi. Reports suggest the riots broke when Hindus urged the other community to lower the volume of loudspeakers. This led to a frenzy of riot and arson. Many residents of the majority community claimed that their houses were set ablaze and many of them were forced to flee. Later, the mob allegedly looted the houses and fled with the money and jewellery.

 

Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had said that “nothing has happened” in Dhulagarh.

A delegation of Dhulagarh riot victims has also approached the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) seeking justice in the case. They took this step after they failed to get any justice from Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government.

 

The NCW said it will file a report to the Union home ministry and the PMO.

NHRC would also visit the area and a team of National Investigation Agency (NIA) will inspect the vandalised houses of Dhulagarh.
