The Calcutta High Court will hear the cases filed against the West Bengal government in connection with March 14th police action in Nandigram on April 18.
A division bench comprising Justice P C Ghose and Justice B Somadder directed that the suo motu case initiated by the court on March 15 would be heard along with at least nine other applications.
The bench also directed that any case, whether criminal or civil, in connection with the Nandigram incident being heard by any other bench of the court could go on irrespective of the pendancy of this case.
The direction came after counsel Kalyan Banerjee submitted that at least two related cases pending before other judges had been kept in abeyance owing to this matter.
At least 14 persons were killed and over 100 injured during the police action at Nandigram.
