A Communist, the Scam

At the state of Tripura, India, on November 2019, a case was lodged against former PWD Minister and others regarding funds misplacement of decade old projects amounting to a total of 6.5 Billion Indian Rupees.
The state police under the influence of people in power went on to violate human rights at multiple levels.
Accused former Chief Engineer of Government Dept. was not given insulin for the whole day, former Minister and Left leader was manhandled and allegedly was pushed by his neck. After 103 days, the accused were released on bail because the state police couldn't file chargesheet.
