Police to intervene if torture by ED/CBI continues: Baghel

Monday, 28 November 2022 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

In an implicit warning to the Centre, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel declared on Sunday that his police will be forced to intervene if central agencies continued to physically torture state officials.

In a series of tweets, Baghel said that in a           well-hatched conspiracy, central agencies such as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) were grilling the state officials after hurling fake charges.

“State officials have reported that apart from mental torture, physical assault was also done by the central agencies during interrogation,” he said. 

“I had told the officials to report about the physical torture to the Union government so that the illegal actions can be stopped.

“Cases of broken legs and difficulty in hearing (after being slapped) were reported and these are a matter of serious concern,” he said.

Baghel demanded           transparency in the actions of central agencies and said videography of interrogation should mandatorily be done if state officials are                 questioned.

Baghel said the state police were not intimated about the actions by ED and CBI officials who directly take away the officials with the help of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
