Case related to murder of three BJP workers in Sandeshkhali

On April 1, the justice termed the supplementary charge sheet as contempt of court and warned of issuing necessary rules against the state police. This case is related to an old case related to the murder of three BJP workers in Sandeshkhali, in which the state police had filed the chargesheet without including Shahjahan’s name. Members of the victims’ families later approached a single-judge bench of Justice Jai Sengupta objecting to the non-inclusion of Shahjahan’s name in the charge sheet.
