Trinamool worker attacked by alleged BJP activists
BALURGHAT: A Trinamool worker was attacked by alleged BJP activists with sharp weapons on Sunday night. The incident took place in Dangi Kalaibari area under Bhatpara Gram Panchayat of Balurghat block. A seriously injured Sanjay Das (38), who is the husband of former Bhatpara GP member Jyostna Das, was rushed to Balurghat Super-Specialty Hospital. He had received head injuries. Hospital sources said that around 12 stitches had to be made on his head.
His condition is still critical. A written complaint has already been filed with the police against BJP activist Sujay Das and his co-workers. Police said the accused and his followers have been absconding. The BJP activists led by Sujay had attacked the victim with sharp weapons on Sunday night, while the latter was on his way back home from a fair. Sources said immediately after winning Bhatpara GP in the rural polls, BJP activists have started attacking Trinamool workers.
"Sujay and his followers are the ones who have attacked my husband. The BJP goons have started terrorising locals after capturing power in Bhatpara GP. Police must arrest the culprits," said Jyostna Das.
