CBI probe into the recent killing of two BJP workers in Purulia district of West Bengal denied by the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court today refused to entertain a plea seeking a CBI probe into the recent killing of two BJP workers in Purulia district of West Bengal after panchayat polls. 

A vacation bench of Justices A K Goel and Ashok Bhushan asked the petitioners to approach the Calcutta High Court for the relief. 

Advocate Gaurav Bhatia, appearing for petitioners, said that it is a serious matter as the killing of BJP workers have taken place after the panchayat polls in Purulia district. 

On May 30, 18-year-old Tirlochan Mahato, a BJP worker from Balrampur village of Purulia district was found hanging from a tree with a poster written in Bengali struck on his back, saying he was killed for canvassing for the BJP during panchayat election. 

Another death of one Dulal Kumar, also a BJP worker, had taken place on June 2 in a similar manner in the same district. 
The petition was filed by the father of Kumar, who sought a CBI probe into the killings.
