TAMLUK, 20 JULY: The Tamluk police on Tuesday filed a suo moto case against BJP leader Suvendu Adhikari, who is also the Leader of Opposition in the state Legislative Assembly and 14 others including five MLAs at Tamluk police station within hours after the Nandigram MLA asked Superintendent of Police, East Midnapore K Amarnath to “refrain from doing something that would prompt his transfer to Kashmir’s Anantnag or Baramulla”.

Adhikari and his associates were booked under various sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), National Disaster Management Act and the Official Secrets Act.

Addressing BJP workers near the SP’s office in Tamluk on Monday, Suvendu Adhikari had claimed that he had the “call records” of SP Amarnath K. The BJP MLA went ahead to warn the East Midnapore SP against indulging in acts which may lead to him being “posted in Anantnag or Baramulla in Kashmir”.

Adhikari also said in the meeting, “Do not file fake cases. I have evidence to prove that they are fake… I will file a public interest litigation seeking a CBI probe into such allegations.”

The Nandigram MLA, who narrowly defeated Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in assembly elections held earlier in the year, also said he has “details of all calls made to you (SP and other officers) by the office of the nephew (TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee)”, and added that “if you have the state government to support you, we have the Centre by our side”.

The SP, when contacted, said, “We have lodged a suo moto case against Mr Adhikari. He claimed that he has all call records. Since he is not working in the law enforcement, he should not be having them.”

Adhikari, who is facing multiple police probes, including one related to alleged tarpaulin theft, had further asserted that it would be best if police officers carry out duties without prejudice.

He hailed the NHRC report on Bengal’s post-poll violence which stated that the situation in the state is a manifestation of “law of the ruler” and not the “rule of law”.

Countering the BJP leader’s assertions, TMC state general secretary Kunal Ghosh said, “He is threatening to approach the CBI, but he is the one who should first be arrested by the agency. Everybody knows why he joined the BJP despite having got so much from the TMC. He is simply staging a drama.”

Adhikari, who crossed over to the BJP from the TMC ahead of state elections, is one of the accused in Narada sting operation case, which is being investigated by the CBI.
