KOLKATA, Dec 12: Amid a controversy over the public prosecutor seeking minimum punishment for the three accused in the Park Street gangrape case, the West Bengal government on Saturday removed the lawyer from the panel of government pleaders. However, the prosecutor Sarbani Roy hit back, virtually questioning the government’s will in bbing the absconding main accused, and threatening to expose those working behind the scenes to help the youth escape the law.

A day after Roy said she did not seek the maximum punishment for the three youths, as they were not directly involved in the rape of the Anglo-Indian woman in February 2012, state Law and Justice Minister Chandrima Bhattacharya announced she has been sacked. (IANS)
