East Midnapore SP Amarnath K. Taking suo motu cognizance, the matter has been registered under various provisions of National Disaster Management Act and Official Secrets Act.

Shubhendu Adhikari had warned the IPS officer to tread carefully, saying, a young boy has come here as SP, Amarnath K. I know what he is doing, I am an experienced player. I want to tell him that you are a Central cadre officer, so don’t get involved in anything for which you can be posted in Anantnag or Baramulla in Kashmir.

“I have every call record, the phone numbers of all those who call you from nephew’s (Trinamool MP Abhishek Banerjee) office,” the official said. If you have a state government, we have a central government.
He said this while addressing BJP workers near the SP office in Tamluk on Monday.

The remarks come at a time when the state government has opened several cases against the officer, including a probe into the mysterious death of his personal security guard in 2018 and his alleged involvement in a tarpaulin theft case.
