High Court at Calcutta & Anr.
State of W.B. & Ors.
AST 10 of 2011
In the present situation we are more
concerned about the human and fundamental
rights of the victims in the case. From the report
and the case diary it is revealed that the victims
in this case are the villagers of Netai village and
belonged to poorest of poor in the society
were virtually under seize of the armed
miscreants who not only exploited them for so
many days but when on the day of incident they
tried to protest in peaceful manner and for that
purpose assembled near the house of Rathin
Dandapat the armed miscreants opened fire at
them standing on the rooftop of the house of
Rathin Dandapat which led to the death of 7-8
persons and injured 20 persons. No civilized
society governed by the rule of law can tolerate
such incident and we have no hesitation to come
to the conclusion that the State has failed to
protect their human and fundamental right to life
and personal liberty.Therefore, in our opinion
the victims deserve to be compensated.
The list furnished by the
petitioners in W.P No. 10/11 of the armed camps
may be forthwith verified and necessary action be
We are now adjourning the two writ
along with the writ petition filed by Asish Das to
4th February at 10.30 am.
Let the matter
appear before this Court on 4th February, 2011.
