The Trinamool Congress hit out at the West Bengal police over the Gyaneswari Express derailment, which claimed 148 lives, with a party MP saying he did not believe in the DGP’s statement holding the Maoists responsible for the train tragedy.
Asked to comment on the DGP Bhupinder Singh’s statement that Maoists were behind the mishap, party MP Kalyan Banerjee told a TV channel “the DGP is a very foolish person. I don’t believe in his statement at all.”
Banerjee claimed the CBI was being asked to inquire into the disaster. “Unless and until the probe is complete any comment on it would be premature and a foolish opinion,” Banerjee, also a senior lawyer, he said.
The DGP could not be contacted for his comments.
