Kolkata hit-and-run case: CPI (M) demands action against TMC MP’s son

New Delhi, Jan. 17 (ANI): For an improved law and order situation in the state, the Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Sunday demanded punishment for arrested Trinamool Congress’ (TMC) son Sambia Sohrab, who is the prime accused in the Kolkata hit-and-run case.

“These types of incidences are taking place because of government’s indulgence. This boy is also one of such element under Trinamool Party. Military pressure is there, but still they took four-five days to catch him. Now, a proper case should be filed and this type of criminal should be punished. Only then, the law and order situation can improve,” CPM leader Hannan Mollah told ANI.

“In West Bengal, there is nothing like law and order. There is total chaos because a new generation with black money and criminal activity have been groomed by Mamata Banerjee Party. From day one she gave the signal that criminals are free,” he added.

Sohrab, the prime accused in the hit-and-run death of an Indian Air Force corporal during Republic Day rehearsals on Red Road, was arrested last night by the Kolkata Police.

Sambia is Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mohammad Sohrab’s son and last Wednesday, he allegedly ran over IAF corporal Abhimanyu Gaud amidst the Republic Day parade rehearsal in Kolkata.

He was arrested around 11.10 pm while he was heading towards his in-laws’ house. Following questioning, he is likely to be produced before the court here on Sunday as he faces charges of murder and criminal conspiracy.

Last Wednesday, during a drill in the run-up to the Republic Day, an Audi charged into the cordoned-off area and when the corporal tried to stop the vehicle near the south gate of the Fort William, he was fatally run over by the speeding car.

Gaud was rushed to the hospital where he was declared dead. (ANI)
