Sudipta's family meets WB Guv, seeks CBI probe

Kolkata, April 5: The distraught family of Sudipta Gupta, the SFI leader who was killed after being allegedly beaten up by the police while in custody on April 2, met West Bengal Governor M K Narayana along with Left leaders and demanded a CBI inquiry into the death.

The elder sister of the slain 22-year-old SFI leader, said they did not have any faith in the state police and wanted an inquiry by the central agency to get justice. They said the governor heard them with care. The family also vented its frustration at Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's remark made at Bangalore airport on Thursday that Gupta's death was a "petty matter".

Sudipta's sister said that they had banked on the CM but she had let them down.
The family also rejected the theory that Gupta was killed in an accident. It claimed that Sudipta's body had several injuries.

Leader of the Opposition Surja Kanta Mishra and CPI(M) leader Sujan Chakrabarti visited the Guptas on Friday. Sudipta's father Pranab Gupta slammed the chief minister for her "petty" comment and also sought her resignation. He said the chief minister could never understand the family' agony. He told the Left leaders that he wanted to meet the Governor and they assured to help him.
