 FIR against Suvendu for stealing relief materials




AN fir has been register against West Bengal BJP leader 

Suvendu Adhikari, his brother Soumendu Adhikari and two 

others, for allegedly stealing relief materials meant for 

those displaced by Cyclone Yaas. 

In the complaint filed at the Contai police station in East 

Midnapore, Ratnadeep Manna, a member of the Kanthi Mu-

nicipal Administrative Board, alleged that some of the items 

meant for cyclone relief were stolen with the help of central 

force personnel assigned for Suvendu’s 

security.

“On May 29, around 12.30 pm, central 

force personnel came to a godown in Con-

tai municipality with a small truck. With 

the help of two employees of the civic 

body, Himangshu Manna and Pratap Dey, 

they loaded the tarpaulin sheets worth D1 

lakh, given by the state government as re-

lief materials for cyclone victims, onto the truck and de-

camped,” Manna wrote in his complaint.

“I and another member of the board of administrators 

questioned Himangshu and Pratap. The two fumbled and 

admitted that they committed the crime on the direction of 

Suvendu and Soumendu,’’ Manna alleged in the First Infor-

mation Report.

Based on the complaint, the police registered a case under 

Indian Penal Code (IPC) Sections 379 (theft), 409 (criminal 

breach of trust), 448 (trespassing) and 120B (criminal con-

spiracy) and 51/53 of Disaster Management Act, 2005, which 

deals with the misappropriation of goods meant for relief. 

Suvendu or Soumendu could be contacted for their 

reaction.
