TMC activist beaten up in Murshidabad
Kolkata: A Trinamool Congress activist was injured after being beaten up by some miscreants in Murshidabad. The district Trinamool Congress leaders have alleged that some Congress-backed goons were involved in the attack.
The victim has been identified as Tuhin Sarkar. A resident of the Kalinagar area in Murshidabad, Sarkar was returning home on late Saturday evening when two motorcycle-borne miscreants stopped his way.
They got down from the bike and started beating up the victim indiscriminately. The victim fell on the ground after receiving several blows. Hearing the screams of the victim, some local residents came to his rescue. The miscreants, however, had fled from the spot before the local people reached there.
They rushed the victim to a nearby health centre. His condition is stated to be stable now. The incident has subsequently triggered a blame game between the local TMC and Congress leaders.
TMC leaders alleged that Congress had engaged the miscreants to beat up Sarkar. However, Congress has refuted the allegation and termed the incident a result of infighting within TMC. Police have started a probe in this regard. They are conducting raids to nab the culprits.
