By Our Correspondent

Agartala, Jan. 13: Opposition leader Manik Sarkar today demanded judicial inquiry into the custodial death of Sushanta Ghosh, one of the accused of ATM hacking case.

Sushanta (38) who arrested by the crime branch sleuths for his alleged involved in the high profile case recently, was found hanging in the toilet of West Agartala police station yesterday.

Taking a serious note of the incident, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb has already ordered a magisterial level inquiry into the incident. CPI(M)'s frontal organizations like SFI, DYFI and TYF strongly protested the death of a under trial prisoner. They also took out a rally seeking justice for the deceased’s family.

The opposition leader today said there must be judicial probe into the incident to unearth the truth. "The magisterial level inquiry may fall short in revealing the truth as the allegation was raised against the authority of West Agartala police station. The probe will not be able to give justice without removing the accused police officer", he told the media after the visiting the victim’s house.  

A formal complaint was lodged by the victim family alleging that Sushanta Ghosh was murdered by the police sparking major controversy on the police role. Superintendent of Police (SP), West Tripura district Manik Lal Das today said a departmental probe has already been initiated by the police authority to know the circumstance leading to the unfortunate incident. Side by side, a magisterial level inquiry will also be carried out.

On the other hand, a BJP delegation led by MLA Dr. Dilip Kumar Das visited the victim house and promised of doing justice. "We are shocked by the incident-custodial death of a person and police will carry out a proper investigation into the incident.  Every incident should not be seen in the political angle", he said poking at the opposition CPI (M).
