New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), today submitted a preliminary status report to Calcutta High Court on its investigation into the cases of illegal land grabbing, extortion and harassment of women in Sandeshkhali, West Bengal. The report was submitted to the division bench of the Calcutta High Court’s Chief Justice T.S. Sivagnanam and Justice Hiranmay Bhattacharya. While submitting the report the CBI counsel also complained of non-cooperation from the state government in providing the Central agency officials with the land records at Sandeshkhali.

The CBI counsel said that the Central agency through its dedicated portal has received around 900 complaints relating to illegal land grabbing in Sandeshkhali. He argued that without the cooperation of the state government in accessing the original land reports it will be difficult to carry forward the investigation process in the matter.

Meanwhile, the division bench also directed the state government to extend all necessary cooperation to the CBI so that the latter could carry forward its investigation into the matter smoothly.
