The Committee is expected to submit a report to the Court on the status of those who are desirous of returning to their houses but have faced troubles from their locality.
Bench assembles, hearing commences.

#postpollviolence #westbengal
What is the position, court asks.

Adv Priyanka Tibrewal says most of the affected persons appeared before the Committee and were taken back to their houses.

They admitted before the Committee that they were out of their houses and were not allowed to enter
Whatever I argued before this court (on those people being threatened and prevented from going back to their houses) came out to be true before the committee: Priyanka Tibrewal
Tibrewal says she has received more emails from people who have fled their houses.

Only those people who have access to email have been able to contact me: Tibrewal.
And I have only raised issue regarding Entally.

The situation is same across West Bengal. There are more such people: Tibrewal
Tibrewal asks for 10 days time to bring on record situation of more such people from other parts of West Bengal
Court asks whether there is any record to show these people had initially contacted the police and no help was forthcoming.

Tibrewal says she has records of representations/ communication to Police.
Advocate General Kishore Dutta request that the report of the committee be circulated to the State so that the State can assist the court.

Dutta also says it is possible that these people had not approached the Police.
