Netai massacre case: Trial fails to start
Midnapore (WB): The trial for the January seven Netai massacre case, in which 20 persons including local CPI(M) leaders were chargesheeted by CBI, could not start
on Monday as a related case was pending in the Calcutta High Court.
The counsel for the accused told the court of Additional Sessions judge Madhumati Mitra that a case was filed against the CBI chargesheet in the high court and the case was pending.
As the trial would start on the basis of that chargesheet, it should not start before disposal of the high court case, the counsel said.
The judge fixed December 15 as the next date of hearing.
The court was supposed to start the trial from today and two witnesses of CBI were present.
CBI filed the charge sheet on April four for the massacre of nine people, including four women, at Netai village in West Midnapore district of West Bengal.
Of the 20 accused, 12 were arrested for the mass killing that occurred when a large number of people, allegedly hired by CPI(M), fired bullets at the villagers.
All the accused were booked under several sections of IPC including 302 (murder).
