Bengal violence: District division into four zones; CBI to file separate FIRs in case of murder, rapes and unnatural deaths

News Desk: After forming a special investigation team, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has decided to soon file FIRs in the West Bengal post-poll violence case. A meeting of CBI director Subodh Kumar Jaiswal and joint directors of the four special teams was held on Saturday. The central agency is likely to make its move next week and teams may visit Canning in South 24 Parganas, as most reports of violence came from this area.

According to CBI sources, the whole district will be divided into four zones — North, South, West and Kolkata – and will have one team each in charge.

In case of murders, rapes and unnatural deaths, CBI will file separate FIRs without tagging or clubbing. The agency sought information from state director general of police Virendra and Kolkata police commissioner Soumen Mitra on Friday.
