Kolkata: The Trinamool Congress on Friday
hailed the Calcutta High Court`s order directing CBI to probe
the gunning down of nine persons at Netai village, near
Lalgarh, allegedly by CPI-M cadres on January 7.
Trinamool MP Subhendu Adhikari told reporters that
family members of the victims killed or injured in the firing
had been praying for a CBI probe.

"The order has come as a great relief for the people
of Netai who feel that there should be a CBI probe as an
impartial inquiry was not possible by the CID since the
allegation was against CPI-M cadres and leaders," Adhikari
said.
Besides, the CID falls under the Home Department
looked after by the chief minister of the state, the Trinamool
leader said.

Alleging that armed cadres of the CPI-M had killed
innocent villagers, he said it is expected that truth would
come out in the CBI investigation.
