Kolkata: Ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal today declined to comment on the Calcutta High Court order of filing an FIR against party MP Tapas Pal for his controversial comments against women and its direction that the CID probe the matter.


“No, I will not comment anything without seeing the order,” TMC all India general secretary Mukul Roy told PTI. The state BJP, on the other hand, welcomed the High Court order.

“We welcome the High Court order. We are grateful to the court for the order,” state BJP leader Tathagata Roy said.

CPI(M) central committee member Suryakanta Mishra said “I hope that according to the court order the complaint would be treated as an FIR. I think he (Tapas Pal) should be arrested.”

Justice Dipankar Dutta, passing his verdict on a petition seeking CID investigation into Pal's comments against women and other opposition party supporters at election rallies, directed that the high court would monitor the probe in view of West Bengal government's stand that the complaint did not disclose any cognisable offence and that the state tried to back the MP.
