Wednesday 29th May 2024 07:44 EDT

The Calcutta HC ordered an interim stay on police probe against officer on special duty (OSD) and two other Raj Bhavan employees in connection with the molestation allegation levelled against West Bengal governor C V Ananda Bose by a woman. Meanwhile, Bose said he has urged Centre to act against three IAS/IPS officers for acting in haste and carrying out an “unlawful investigation” into “cooked up” charges against the three staffers. Bose accused these officers of “ingratiating” towards Trinamool Congress. Although the FIR does not name the governor, Bose said the officers had stepped beyond their role by starting an illegal case against him and vilifying him in public, which called for severe punishment.
