Kolkata: West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar has once again come down heavily on the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government on Wednesday. He claimed to have received an “alarming report” from former West Bengal Police (WBP) chief and currently the State Security Advisor (SSA) Surajit Kar Purakayastha.
“Alarming reports that De facto boss @WBPolice Surajit Kar Purakayastha #[email protected] vigorously engaged in translating politically motivated police actions. Concerned at Field police work of DGP- postings & transfer, investigation usurped by De facto boss Purakayastha”, tweeted Governor Dhankhar.

“Such capitulation #DGP @WBPolice and usurpation #SSA @MamataOfficial sounds death knell of democracy. Such gross violation of Police Act and constitutional provisions proves political stance of police and administration that is by law required to be “politically neutrality”, Governor again tweeted.
