Last month, Tripura's BJP-IPFT government decided to examine all cases of political violence in which family members of those killed are seeking proper investigation so that culprits are punished. The government formed a three-member probe committee headed by Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath which will provide its recommendations after the completion of the investigations.

According to State Chief Minister Biplab Deb, 186 cases of violence were registered in the state after the Election Commission announced the Lok Sabha election schedule in March.
