New Delhi :

The Supreme Court refused to interfere in the Sandeshkhali case of West Bengal. The Supreme Court on Monday refused to hear the petition for CBI or SIT investigation in this case. Also, the court has asked the petitioner to go to Calcutta High Court. In this case, lawyer Alakh Alok Srivastava had filed a public interest litigation in the Supreme Court. Now he has withdrawn his petition. 

The Supreme Court said in this matter that it should not be compared with Manipur. The High Court has taken suo motu cognizance of the matter. The High Court is best to assess the situation. The High Court is capable of ordering an SIT investigation.

The Supreme Court also said that it understands the curiosity and sympathy towards the victims, but the monitoring of any investigation by this court is completely different. 

After this the petitioner has withdrawn his petition. The petitioner has withdrawn the petition to approach the High Court, which has been allowed by the Supreme Court.  

The bench of Justice BV Nagarathna and Justice Augustin George Masih heard the case. 

This demand was made in the petition 

In the petition filed by the Supreme Court lawyer, a demand was made to investigate the case by SIT or CBI. In the petition, there was a demand to conduct the entire investigation outside West Bengal for a fair investigation. Also, a demand was made to the Supreme Court to form a committee of 3 retired judges on the lines of Manipur. Along with giving instructions to give compensation to the victims, a demand has also been made in the petition to take disciplinary action against the guilty policemen.
