Kolkata, December 5
Senior BJP leader Mukul Roy has been named conspirator in the second supplementary chargesheet filed by the West Bengal CID on Saturday in the murder of Trinamool Congress MLA Satyajit Biswas, sources in the agency said.
The second supplementary chargesheet was filed in a court at Ranaghat in Nadia district on Saturday.
Part of conspiracy
- Trinamool Congress MLA Satyajit Biswas was shot dead during a Saraswati Puja programme in Nadia district in February 2019
- BJP leader Mukul Roy has been found to have been “very actively involved primarily as a conspirator” in the murder
The BJP leader has been found to have been “very actively involved primarily as a conspirator” in the killing of Biswas in February 2019, they said. Roy rubbished the charges and said he had “never believed in violence in politics”.
“There are at least 45 cases pending against me. I do not believe in the politics of violence and never indulge in such things. I challenge Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is also the police minister, to say it in public that I have such kind of taste. I was never involved in these things even when I was with her party. I have total faith in the judiciary of our country,” said Roy.
BJP’s national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya termed the CID’s action against Roy a “conspiracy of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee”. — PTI
