New Delhi, February 18: The All India Bar Association (AIBA) has written to West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, cautioning about demands for President's Rule in the state after witnessing horrific incidents of sexual assault and violence in Sandeshkhali.

We have also cautioned the Chief Minister that she shall ensure that the State doesn't turn into "Jungle Raj" or else we will have to demand President's Rule," said Aggarwala, who is also the President of the Supreme Court Bar Association.
