West Bengal opposition leader Suvendu Adhikari has said he has the call records of telephonic conversations of the Police Superintendent of East Medinipur, Amarnath K.
Asking the IPS officer to tread with caution, Suvendu Adhikari said: “A young boy has come as SP here, Amarnath K. I know all that he is up to, I am a veteran player. I want to tell him that you are a central cadre officer so don’t indulge in anything for which you may get posted in Anantnag or Baramulla in Kashmir.”
“I’ve each and every call record, phone number of all those who call you from the nephew’s (TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee) office. If you have the state government with you, we have the central government with us,” Adhikari said while addressing BJP workers near the SP’s office in Tamluk on Monday.
The remarks come at a time when the Mamata Banerjee-led TMC government has started police investigation into multiple cases against Suvendu Adhikari. Police are probing his involvement in a tarpaulin theft case while the state CID has taken up the probe into the mysterious murder of his security guard in 2018.
“You cannot stop nationalist forces in the district by slapping false cases… I am moving for CBI investigation into the role of IO, OC, and the SP. No one, be it Chotimoni or Pishimoni, will be able to save you,” the Nandigram BJP MLA said, in a veiled attack on Mamata Banerjee.
Meanwhile, TMC’s State General Secretary and spokesperson Kunal Ghosh sought an inquiry into the claims made by Adhikari.
He said, “The LOP (Limitless Opportunist) has openly told the police that he has the call list of our leader’s office, all recordings. This is evidence of eavesdropping on phone. @MamataOfficial ,@abhishekaitc Request to immediately start an investigation and bring the whole conspiracy to light through his custody interrogation.”
