In the West Bengal post-election violence case, the petitioner has filed a caveat in the Supreme Court, requesting that the Court ensure that “I am heard in the case.”

The principal petitioner in the alleged post-election violence case was the first to file a petition with the Calcutta High Court.

The Five-Judge Bench led by Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal denied the TMC government’s bid to recall the June 18 order. The verdict came in response to a series of petitions alleging relocation from homes, physical assault, property destruction, and ransacking of businesses as a result of the state’s post-election violence.

The Calcutta High Court dismissed a petition filed by the West Bengal government seeking the recall of the High Court’s June 18 order, which directed the chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to form a committee to investigate complaints from people displaced by post-election violence in West Bengal.

The caveat is moved as a precautionary measure. Now if anyone from the state moves Supreme Court in this matter the Supreme Court cannot dispose off the matter before hearing it.
