Submit report on violence, Centre warns Bengal

The home ministry dispatched a letter to the West Bengal government on Wednesday to submit a detailed report on the post-poll violence in the state, warning it that the matter will be taken 'seriously' in case it fails to do so, and asked it to take necessary measures to stop such incidents 'without any loss of time', officials said. A similar letter was sent by the Home Ministry on May 3 however, the West Bengal government is yet to send the report, the officials said.According to latest development, the violence has not stopped in West Bengal and this means that effective measures were not taken by the state government to control it, the letter stated. One such case reported by media was of Kakali Kshetrapal, a Bharatiya Janata Party leader's mother, who was killed in post-poll clashes in West Bengal's Purba Bardhaman but her body has been lying in the morgue for two days as her family members went into hiding after police started a hunt for them in connection with the murder of two TMC workers.Kakali, 47, the mother of BJP's Nabagram area chief Ashish Kshetrapal, was allegedly killed in the clashes.TMC workers Shajahan Shah, 30, and Bibhash Bagh, 27, were also allegedly killed, police said.Soon after the incident, central forces were deployed in the area and police started a manhunt, following which Kakali's family members along with several local BJP leaders went into hiding.Police said on Wednesday that they have arrested 11 people in connection with the incident based on the complaints filed by both the parties.Even as Kakali's body was lying in Jamalpur Hospital for a long time on Monday none of the BJP leaders went there, local party workers said.Later, police took the body to Jamalpur police station.On Tuesday, the body was sent to the police morgue in Burdwan Medical College and Hospital for post-mortem and it has been lying there ever sinceThe BJP's Jamalpur assembly constituency convenor Jiten Dakal said that he could not visit the hospital but had asked the party's mandal presidents repeatedly to do the needful."If they don't go, what can I do?" he said.Meanwhile, Communist Party of India-Marxist leader Samar Ghosh said Kakali was a member of his party and they have been trying to get her body from the morgue.Police sources said they are trying to contact Kakali's daughter and son-in-law, who live in the Hooghly district, for handing over the body and completing the other formalities.
