Publicise The Email: Court Asks DM

The court has asked the North 24 Parganas district magistrate to publicise the email ID extensively within the locality and issue a public notice in vernacular newspapers with wide circulation. The division bench, presided over by Chief Justice T S Sivagnanam, had directed the CBI to conduct a comprehensive probe into the alleged illegal conversion of agricultural land into water bodies for pisciculture.

He was later arrested and has been remanded into custody.
