Kolkata: The state police has started a non-bailable case against the BJP state president Dilip Ghosh at Kharagpur Town police station for leading a rally with arms on Wednesday, which also saw the presence of children and women. The Kolkata Police has also initiated suo moto cases at Entally, Bhowanipore and Posta police stations for organising processions with arms against the organisers of the programmes. 

“It is illegal to organise any rally with arms, as that may lead to fatal injuries. A case has started against Mr Ghosh under Section 25 (1)(a) of the Arms Act on the basis of a compliant lodged by a local,” a senior policeman of West Midnapore district said. 

 

Mr Ghosh said, “Law should be the same for every individual. The chairman of Kharagpur municipality was also present with me. So if I get arrested then I hope he too will have the same fate. If not, then will he be suspended from the party?”
