Ten arrested for threatening Bengal BDO in poster removal case

A government official in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district has alleged that he was threatened with dire consequences by a Trinamool Congress legislator who also assaulted him for removing posters of party supremo Mamata Banerjee. Ten party workers have been arrested as a result, though party leaders scotched such allegations.

An officer of Ashokenagar Police station confirmed the receipt of the FIR and said 10 people have been arrested in this connection after they surrendered before the police.

Block development officer Dinobandhu Gayen, in his FIR to the Ashokenagar police station filed on 26 March, alleged that local legislator Dhiman Roy abused him on telephone after a Model Code of Conduct team removed the posters and festoons bearing pictures of Banerjee from public places.
