Abhishek calls prime accused Abhijit an RSS activist, says 'no one involved will be spared'
Kolkata: Abhishek Banerjee, All India Trinamool Youth Congress president and party MP, said on Monday that the alleged prime accused in the Satyajit Biswas murder case Abhijit Pundar, is an RSS activist.
Biswas, who was a sitting Trinamool Congress MLA, was murdered when he had gone to attend a function in connection with Saraswati Puja on Saturday night.
Banerjee, along with Trinamool Congress MLA from Shantipur Arindam Bhattacharya, went to Hanskhali and met the family members of Biswas. Banerjee garlanded a photograph of Biswas kept on the Hanskhali ground and then went to meet his family members at his residence.
Talking to media persons, Banerjee said no one involved in the incident will be spared. "Those who think that by holding the hands of some Delhi-based leaders they can run away from the crime, are actually living in a fool's paradise. Mamata Banerjee is the state Home minister and no one associated with the crime will be spared," the Trinamool Youth Congress president said.
He further alleged that the prime accused Abhijit Pundar is an RSS activist. He said that BJP is trying to destabilise the area by dividing people.
"The murder is the result of political vendetta," he said, adding that there was no infighting in the party. "Biswas was a good organiser and was very popular in the area," Banerjee said.
It may be mentioned that Banerjee and Anubrata Mondol have been tasked with looking after Nadia district, along with Partha Chatterjee. Chatterjee and Mondol had visited Hanskhali on Sunday.
Biswas's wife is yet to recover from the tremendous shock of the incident. Satyajit's two-year-old son is waiting for the return of his father. He was with Biswas at the function when the incident took place.
Members of the Matua community blocked the railway tracks at several places in North 24-Parganas, demanding stringent action against the assailants of Satyajit Biswas. It may be recalled that Biswas was an active member of the Matua community.
Trinamool Congress MP Mamatabala Thakur visited the house of Satyajit Biswas, along with state Food minister Jyotipriya Mallick and party MLA Kallol Khan.
Thakur said Biswas was an active member of the Matua community. She alleged that BJP has murdered him because of his influence on the community.
"We demand a thorough investigation into the matter and stern action against the culprits," she said.
Mallick further informed that the Matuas will observe a condolence meeting at their sangha in this connection.
