Parliamentary Committee: On Thursday, a meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Committee attached to the Ministry of Home Affairs was held. Although the main topic of discussion in the meeting was the modernization of police in Haryana and Bengal, but the issue of post-election violence and misuse of Narcotics Act in Bengal arose. Apart from senior police officers of Haryana, the Director General of Police of Bengal also attended the meeting. A BJP MP present there raised the question of the action taken so far in the case of party workers killed in the violence after the assembly elections in Bengal.
The BJP MP alleged that despite the FIR being lodged in the cases of violence, no action is being taken. Apart from this, after the arrest of Shahrukh Khan’s son Aryan Khan in the drugs case, there was a debate about the misuse of Narcotics Act (NDPS Act 1985).
BJP MP also raised the issue of misuse of this law
In this connection, the BJP MP from Bengal, who was present in the Standing Committee meeting, also raised the issue of misuse of this law. The MP asked the DGP about the number of cases that have been filed under this law. The MP alleged that in most of these cases, fake cases have been filed. This allegation of the BJP MP also got the support of the Congress, after which the chairman of the committee, Anand Sharma, asked the DGP to give a report in this matter.
