While police denied of any such incident, local RSP MLA Subhas Naskar said the family had been threatened against from filing a report.
“There has been no such incident I know,” said Praveen Tripathi, SP, South 24 Parganas. Naskar, however, said he has been to the victim’s place.
“All of them have been beaten up. Based on our complaint, the police had come to inquire, but since there was no written complaint from the victim, the police did not start a case. The police should have taken a suo-motu case,” Naskar said adding that even houses of several CPM workers in Canning and Basanti had been attacked.
Meanwhile, at Radhanagar in Kharagpur, a gang of over 200 persons attacked houses of CPM supporters. They ransacked the houses and beat up residents including women and children.
Eight have been admitted to the hospital with severe injuries. Police have arrested two.
The house of an ex-army official Sunirmal Biswas was also attacked at Naihati for ignoring warnings and casting his vote Monday.
A gang of bikers, allegedly belonging to the TMC, hurled bombs at their house. No one has been arrested in the incident.
At Gangarampur in South Dinajpore, the body of Sabekul Sarkar, a CPM supporter, bearing injury marks was recovered Tuesday under Bagdhara bridge.
CPM district committee member Hiren Saha alleged that Sarkar was killed by TMC supporters. A police complaint has been filed in this regard.
Amitjyoti Bhattacharya, assistant CEO said they had heard reports of violence at Basanti in South 24 Parganas, but there was no official intimation.
“We have only heard about such violence on TV, no official report has been sent to us. No other incidence of violence was reported,” he said.
