The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has filed another 10 cases in connection with the post-poll violence in West Bengal, just a day after 11 separate cases were registered, taking the tally of total cases to 21. Sources suggest that the agency also has detained two accused in connection with the case on Friday.
To probe the cases, the Centre has provided CRPF security cover to the CBI teams amid apprehension of locals and the state administration disrupting the investigation.
The agency said that so far it has registered eleven separate cases after being handed over the probe by the Calcutta High Court.
The Calcutta High Court had recently handed over the investigation of serious crimes such as rape and murder during the post-poll violence in West Bengal to the CBI. Similarly, the division bench of the high court also formed a Special Investigation Team (SIT) to investigate the lesser crimes that occured after the declaration of Assembly election results in Bengal on May 2.
