The father of slain SFI activist Sudipta Gupta,who died died under controversial circumstances in police custody during a student demonstration,has filed a writ petition in the Calcutta High Court seeking CBI probe into his son’s death.

In his petition,Pranab Gupta has alleged that his son Sudipta was severely injured in the police custody after being tortured by the Kolkata Police personnel.

Gupta,meanwhile,told reporters that he had lodged a complaint with the police to investigate the death of his son but they did not conduct any probe. He said that he did not get justice from the present government so there was no other option to approach the Calcutta High Court for CBI probe. An independent and fair investigation can not be possible for any agency of the state government when the Kolkata Police was responsible for the death of his son,he stated in the petition. The case is likely to come up for hearing next Friday.

Sudipta Gupta was arrested from a rally of the SFI at Rani Rashmoni Sarani in Kolkata on April 1 and he was allegedly beaten up by the police on the way to Presidency jail on a bus. He was taken to SSKM hospital where he died on April 2.
