The West Bengal CID on Thursday took over the investigation of cases lodged against TMC leader Sheikh Shahjahan, who was arrested from Minakhan in North 24 Parganas district, said a senior official.

Sheikh, who was apprehended in the early hours of Thursday, was brought to Bhawani Bhawan from a local court in Basirhat, which sent him to 10 days police custody. He was arrested in two cases in connection with an assault on Enforcement Directorate (ED) officers on the 5th of January during a raid at his house in an alleged ration scam. He was charged under various sections of the IPC, including 147 (rioting) and 307 (attempt to murder), said the police.
