Three days after the death of SFI leader Sudipta Gupta, his father will meet West Bengal Governor M K Narayanan on Friday to seek justice.


Raj Bhavan sources confirmed that Sudipta's father will meet the Governor at 5:00 PM.

Earlier, CPI(M) leader Surjya Kanta Mishra who met the SFI leader's family told reporters, "They want to meet the Governor. They said they have no faith in the police and want a judicial or CBI probe into the death of Sudipta. I will convey their demand to the Governor." Sudipta's father Pranab Gupta alleged that attempts were being made to cover up the death and demanded justice, while his sister demanded a CBI inquiry.

"We want justice. I still hope that chief minister Mamata Banerjee will look into it. She said it was an accident and a petty matter. My brother was in police custody and was killed by the police. We want a CBI probe. We will go to the Governor," she told reporters.

The Left and the Congress had earlier demanded a judicial inquiry into the SFI leader's death.

The chief minister had yesterday stoked controversy by terming the the SFI leader's death as a "small and petty" incident.
