Taking a note of the report submitted by the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Kolkata High Court had recently ordered a CBI probe into the violence.

The central agency on Saturday arrested two persons, including a woman, in connection with a murder case in Nadia’s Chapra.

The CBI said they faced resistance on Saturday while carrying out a search operation  in Nadia. “During a search operation in the district, our vehicles were intercepted by TMC supporters. They wanted us to leave the area. With the help of security personnel, we carried out the search operations,’’ said a CBI official.
