Kolkata :  Calling it "worse than the Jallianwala Bagh massacre", the Justice Sushanta Chatterjee Commission Monday said the July 21, 1993, police firing in which 13 Congress workers were killed was unprovoked and unconstitutional.

Set up by the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress government, the commission Monday submitted its report to the government. It has held responsible the people at the helm of the state home department and the police top brass for the firing on Youth Congress activists who had blockaded the Writers' Building - the state secretariat.

"The commission has come to a conclusion that the instant case is even worse than Jallianwala Bagh massacre. After going through a host of witnesses and documents, the commission has found the firing was unprovoked and unconstitutional," Justice Chatterjee said revealing the findings of the report.

"The people who were at the helm of the home department as well as the top police brass cannot escape responsibility for the firing," said Chatterjee.
