Shahjahan Sheikh, who has been absconding for more than 55 days, was arrested by the West Bengal Police on February 29. After this, the Trinamool Congress suspended him from the party for six years. Shahjahan Sheikh and his accomplices are accused of sexual harassment and land grab by many women here under the message.

Since then Sheikh Shahjahan was absconding. He has been accused of carrying out the attack.

Villagers took to the streets to demand the arrest of Shah Jahan

A complaint was filed against Shah Jahan Sheikh that some women were sexually assaulted in Sandeshkali village and the land of the poor was grabbed. After this, the ruling Trinamool Congress and the opposition party, BJP, began to exchange accusations. Villagers, mostly women, took to the streets to demand Shah Jahan Sheikh's arrest. A hearing was held in the Calcutta High Court on the petitions filed in this case. At this time, the court had reprimanded the government for the delay in taking action against the accused. A complaint was filed with the state police in this case four years ago. The high court also asked how it took four years to investigate the case.
