AGARTALA, Oct 29 � In an embarrassment to the Left Front Government in Tripura on corruption issue, High Court of Tripura on Wednesday issued notice to the State Government asking it to explain its stand that CBI probe is not necessary to unearth the multi-crore scam at Bishalgarh Bock.

A division bench of the High Court comprising of Chief Justice Deepak Gupta and Justice Subhashish Talapatra heard a Public Interest Litigation (PIL) seeking CBI probe into the multi-crore scam and fixed the next date of hearing on November 24.

The bench also asked the Officer in Charge (OC) of Bishalgarh police station to produce Case Dairy (CD), considered a progress report of the investigation, before the court. Besides, the court asked the government to explain why it took time to register an FIR into the case.

Though serving notice to the State Government is a follow-up process, asking submitting of CD assumes importance. The investigation into the Rs 17 crore scam is tardy as only the prime accused Bimal Chakraborty, the then BDO of the Block has so far been arrested while eleven more accused persons are still at large.

Even as the investigators have been grilling the prime accused, cops are still tightlipped on the progress in the investigation. Interestingly, the Subdivisional Judicial Magistrate (SDJM), Bishalgarh has already issued arrest warrants against all the absconding accused persons.

A PIL was filed by Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) spokesman Dr Ashok Sinha and Advovate Asish Nandy in the High Court on October 28 seeking a CBI investigation into the multi-crore scam at Bishalgarh Block.

While senior advocate of Calcutta High Court Joydeep Kar and Arijit Bhowmik represented Sinha and Nandy, senior advocate Sankar Deb and advocate TD Mazumder appeared on behalf of the State Government.
