“Our teams visited Sonarpur in South 24 Parganas, Domjur in Howrah and Chapra in Nadia district. We came across evidences of post-poll violence as proof of rampage is still visible in the houses of the complainants,’’ said a CBI officer.

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.
