EC Transfers IC of Harischandrapur Police Station
Malda, 12 April, 2014: Inspector in charge (IC) of Harischandrapur police station Babin Mukherjee has been removed by an order of the Election Commission on Saturday. CPM lodged a complaint of intimacy with ruling Trinamool Congress against Mukherjee.
It has been learnt from sources that recently Mukherjee inaugurated a women's help desk in Harischandrapur police station and invited local Trinamool leader Madhumita Roy in the programme.
Immediately after the inauguration, CPM leaders lodged a complaint with EC claiming that Mukherjee had violated model code of conduct by inviting TMC leaders in inauguration programme of the centre after declaration of election. CPM leaders apprehended that Mukherjee might indirectly provide advantage to Trinamool during the election.
After the complaint was reviewed by the EC, district police administration was directed to replace Mukherjee. Accordingly, he was asked to join missing personnel bureau of the district immediately.
SP, Malda Rupesh Kumar said, “A new officer would take up the charge of Harischandrapur police station.”
Mukherjee however refrained from comments and only said that he got information of transfer on Saturday.
