The Calcutta High Court dismissed the State Government’s Petition, sustaining the Single Bench Order and observed that the State cannot take any Punitive Action against West Bengal leader of opposition Suvendu Adhikari.

The State challenged the Single Bench Order by Justice Rajsekhar Manthar but the Division Bench comprising of Justice Subrata Talukdar and Justice Kesang Bhutia disposed the State Government’s Petition.

Suvendu Adhikari is Accused of two crimes – the case regarding the Death of his bodyguard and the allegation of taking Money Illegally in the name of getting a job in Maniktala Police Station.

Adhikari Appealed in the Court for Protection from Arrest in these cases.

It was highlighted that Justice Rajsekhar Manthar dismissed other three cases against Adhikari and informed the State Police to request Court permission before filing a fresh First Information Report (FIR) against Adhikari.

Bilwadal Bhattacharya representing Suvendu Adhikari stated “We have filed a case in the Calcutta High Court claiming that multiple false cases are being filed against Suvendu Adhikari.”

Furthermore, the Division Bench informed that the State should not attempt the Appeal.

The Calcutta High Court had earlier ruled that he cannot be Arrested in all these cases but the Division Bench upheld that Order.
