Trinamool Congress MLA from Raniganj in Burdwan district Shorab Ali has ben sentenced for two years’ rigorous imprisonment by a court in Asansol on the charge of theft of railway iron scraps.

Two more persons were given identical punishment on the same charge by the Seventh Judicial Magistate’s Court in Asansol.

The judge suspended the sentence for a period of three months on a petition by Ali’s counsel Jagadindu Ganguly to enable the petitioner to move a higher court for regular bail.

Ali was accused of stealing iron scraps belonging to Railway in 1995.
“When the incident happened in mid-nineties Sohrab Ali then was a leader of an ally of the ruling Left Front. Let us go through the court order first and then only I will comment,” Trinamool Congress secretary-general Partha Chatterjee said.

Former Lok Sabha Speaker Somnath Chatterjee said that it should set a precedent and people should think carefully before electing someone.
