Sandeshkhali row: Trinamool neta Shahjahan Sheikh should be arrested, HC says | Kolkata News

NEW DELHI: The Calcutta high court made it clear on Monday that there is no stay on the arrest of TMC leader Shahjahan Sheikh, accused in the Sandeshkhali case.
“There is no stay on his arrest. A stay on investigation doesn’t mean stay on arrest. There is a FIR registered, he is branded as an accused. He will have to be arrested,” the HC said.
This came after TMC leader Abhishek Banerjee said that his govt was not shielding Shahjahan.
Trinamool Congress is not shielding Shiekh Shahjahan, he is being shielded by Calcutta high court stay orders based on an ED appeal,” he said on Sunday.
The court while taking note that the incidents of land grabbing were reported four years ago asked why no action was taken.
Additionally, the HC also ordered that public notice should be issued in Bengali and English newspapers as Shahjahan remained untraceble.
