Cooch Behar: Intra-party fighting in Trinamool Congress has once again come out in the open after Majid Ansari, convener of the Cooch Behar College unit, was shot by another group.
Ansari has been admitted to the North Bengal Medical College and Hospital in a critical condition as the bullet has pieced his abdomen. The police have begun a probe. No one has yet been arrested. Sayandwip Goswami, a Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) leader, said following Chief Minister Mamata Banerje's instruction, admission in the college is going on strictly on the basis of merit.
On Friday morning, some outsiders entered the college premises with another list. They beat up students who had put up resistance. While fleeing, they had fired at Ansari.
The students alleged that some criminals enjoying patronage of local Trinamool councillor Subhojit Kundu were behind the crime.
