Mamata Banerjee Visits Bengal’s Rampurhat Village Where 8 Were Burnt Alive

Birbhum: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee visited Bogtui village in Rampurhat where eight people were burnt alive and unleashed a stern warning to the administration. She demanded “stringent action” and said the police would investigate the killings “from all angles”.

“I don’t want any excuses that people have run away. I want people responsible to be arrested and policemen to be punished for lapses. Witnesses must be given protection by police from possible attacks. Those whose homes have been burnt must be given ₹ 1 lakh to repair the houses,” she said soon after landing in Bogtui village.

Banerjee arrived in the afternoon in the village where a mob burnt alive eight people on Tuesday, an incident that has sparked a massive political backlash throughout the country. The West Bengal CM has been accused by the opposition BJP of presiding over a complete collapse of law and order in Bengal.

“I never believed something so barbaric can happen in modern Bengal. Mothers and children were killed,” Banerjee surrounded by relatives of those killed, and other villagers said.

Banerjee summoned a top police officer right there and told him that policemen found negligent in responding to complaints must be punished accordingly.
