CBI Names 22 Accused In Rampurhat Massacre

Kolkata: As many as 22 people have been named as accused by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the Birbhum massacre. Eight people were mercilessly beaten up and burnt alive earlier in the week, which triggered massive political furore.

The list of accused tallies with that of the state police, according to sources. However, the agency has questioned the ruling Trinamool Congress block president Anarul Hossain, who, was arrested after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s promise on her visit to the Bogtui village.

About 20 people have been put behind the bars after six women and two children — mostly members of a single family —- were locked in their homes and burnt alive by a mob at the Bogtui village near Birbhum district’s Rampurhat town earlier in the week.

The attack on the family was allegedly a retaliation to the murder of a local Trinamool Congress leader, Bhadu Sheikh, who died in a bomb attack a few days ago.
