Former finance minister and sitting CPI(M) MLA Bhanu Lal Saha has been interrogated by the police after a case was registered against him at the Amtali Police Station in West Tripura district for his provocative statement on social media.
This is the second day that Saha appeared before the police for interrogation.
Bhanu Lal Saha was interrogated by the police at the East Agartala Police Station last week.
The police quizzed him for almost two hours on Monday, after which he was allowed to leave the police station.
Meanwhile, Saha said that all these are being done to harass the opposition leaders.
“A person has filed a case against me in the Amtali Police Station. This is the tenth such case to be filed against me,” said Bhanu Lal Saha.
“The police interrogated me today. This is just harassment, but they will be unable to prove anything against me in court,” Saha further said.
Saha further said that there exists no law and order in Tripura and urged the people to protect themselves and their properties.
Later advocate Bhaskar Debbarma said the manner in which the police registered cases against Saha is totally unconstitutional and undemocratic.
“The cases filed against Saha are baseless. They were filed simply to senior the senior leader,” said Bhaskar Debbarma.
“We will take legal action against this,” Debbarma said.
Multiple cases were filed against three CPI(M)including former MP Jitendra Choudhury and Left Front state convener Bijan Dhar after they reportedly posted provocative comments on the social media .
Both Choudhury and Dhar were summoned for interrogation at the Amtali Police Station last week.
