Note: The ruling Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPM) was defeated in election in West Bengal State of India by the All India Trinamool Congress Party (TMC) in 2011 by a huge margin. The newly formed TMC government in West Bengal ordered a judicial probe into that mass murder when no killer was arrested by then ruling CPM government.
