Kolkata News

KOLKATA: The West Bengal government has decided to resume internet services in Hooghly from Sunday. Advocate general Kishore Dutta submitted the plan to the high court in response to a PIL by two lawyers.
At a video conference hearing on Saturday, Dutta apprised a division bench of Chief Justice TBN Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee that the state was not going to extend the internet ban and resume services in the district from Sunday.
Lawyers Soumavo Mukherjee and Priyanka Tibrewal had filed the PIL against the state decision to suspend internet services in the district following violence in Chandernagore’s Telenipara.
Meanwhile, Hooghly Police initiated cases against BJP lawmakers Arjun Singh and Locket Chatterjee on Saturday. They have been charged with criminal intimidation, statement conducting public mischief and forgery to harm reputation, and asked to appear before the investigating officer at Chandernagore police commissionerate on May 22.
“Police have lodged 74 cases against me since I left Trinamool Congress. I am not bothered by these things. They stopped me again today when I was going to visit the residence of two party workers who were brutally killed in Amdanga,” Singh said.
