Netai: Govt to decide on moving SC after receiving HC order

Kolkata: West Bengal government today said
it will consider moving the Supreme Court after it gets the
copy of the Calcutta High Court order directing it to hand
over the January 7 Netai massacre case to the CBI.



"We have not yet received the copy of the High Court
order. We have to go through it. Then decision to move the
Supreme Court will be taken after studying the ground," state
Chief Secretary Samar Ghosh said here Friday.

Asked if he was happy with the CID probe into the
massacre of nine persons at Netai village near Lalgarh, the
chief secretary said "the CID had given its report to the
Court".



To a question on whether the CID had been failing when
the court had been ordering handing over of cases after cases
to the CBI, Ghosh said "this is the decision of the High
Court."



"State government thought it wise to ask CID to probe
the Netai case. Now the Court found it should be handed over
to the CBI," he added.



Asked if the monitoring of the case was not properly
monitored, he said "senior officers have supervised the
case".

RSP leader Khsiti Goswami, who had in the past criticised
the government on various issues, said "We have to face it
because we are in the same boat."
