Kolkata, January 19: The CPM connection in respect of the splurge of fake voter identity cards and ration cards have been exposed as the police today busted one such racket at Bongaon in North 24 -Parganas. Four people were arrested, two of whom, Parimal Biswas and Ravi Biswas, are members of the ruling party.

Apart from forging EPICs and ration cards, the racket was also engaged in manufacturing fake birth certificates and SC and ST certificates.

As promised by state secretary Anil Biswas, both Parimal Biswas and Ravi Biswas had been expelled by the party.

Parimal Biswas who was arrested from his home last night, was a resident of Chaitigram under Bongaon Police Station. He divulged the names of his accomplices Ravi Biswas, Jaydeb Sana, Ujjal Roy and Tanmay Mandal to the police. Pravin Kumar, SP, North 24-Parganas, said: “We rounded up the culprits following a tip-off. We have already sealed two printers.” Kapil Ghosh, local committee member of Chaitigram, said that Biswas belonged to the CPI(M) and the party would definitely look into the charges. “The party will conduct an enquiry and if the allegations are true, then Biswas will be expelled from the party.”

Jyotipriya Mallik, a Trinamool MLA from Gaighata, said, “We had filed a written complaint to the authorities and even notified the EC. Only after the arrival of the observers did the authorities take steps. This proves the CPM’s complicity.” Mamata Banerjee accused the CPM of resorting to all kinds of malpractices to win elections.
