A Supreme Court judge on Friday withdrew herself from hearing the post-poll violence case in Bengal in which BJP workers were allegedly killed.
“I do not wish to hear the case. Not before me,” Justice Indira Banerjee said as she recused herself from the case. Justice Banerjee is from Kolkata.
Families of the victims had gone to court asking for a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe.
The Supreme Court had asked the Bengal government to reply in the case to which the state said the petitions were “politically motivated” and wanted them dismissed.
