He said about 380 FIRs were registered against Sen with several police stations in Bengal. As of now, 70 chargesheets have been filed against Sen and the trial was pending in several courts across the state. Three cases are under trial in the Bidhannagar court, he said, adding, Sen has already been sentenced to three years imprisonment in connection with an FIR.

He said the trial of three cases at Bidhannagar court cannot be hampered if there was no specific direction from the apex court .
