Deganga (WB), Apr 17 (PTI) The North 24 Parganas

police has in its inquiry report dismissed allegations made by

villagers of Deganga about firing by CRPF personnel at a booth

at Kurulgachha during polling on Saturday.

The villagers had alleged that the CRPF personnel

deployed at booth number 215 at Kurulgachcha in Deganga in

North 24 Parganas during the fifth phase of polling had fired

at a crowd outsi.

"The allegation is found to be not based on facts,"

the inquiry report by the superintendent of police of Barasat

police district, Raj Narayan Mukherjee sent to special Police

observer, Vivek Dube said.

"From the available witnesses present at the booth the

fact could not be substantiated either. Statement of concerned

ASI of CRPF and the presiding officer of the booth was

videographed. From the very morning there was no report of any

gathering, intimidation or any other practice which may

warrant any action on the part of security forces stationed at

the booth.

The Coy (company) Commander also stated that he spent

almost two hours in that particular booth in the morning but

nothing unusual was witnessed by him," the SP''s report

mentioned.

The company commander is responsible for the actions

of the company of security force under him.

Earlier, in the day the Election Commission had sought

a report from poll observers on the alleged firing by central

forces in Deganga constituency.

An officer of the central armed police force posted at

the booth, where the locals claimed that shots had been fired,

said the allegations made by them were baseless.

Everything was fine here. The voting exercise went

off very peacefully. There was no incident of firing anywhere

in this area, he stated.

During the fourth phase, on April 10, four persons

were killed after the CISF personnel opened fire in self

defence outside a booth in Cooch Behar districts Sitalkuchi

area. PTI SCH
