Vishnu Choudhury, BJP worker from Hoogly had to bear the burn on his chest as a group of TMC workers allegedly tattooed “TMC” on his chest with lighted cigarette butts.

BJP President Amit Shah addressed a rally in Kolkata on November 30. Addressing the rally,  Shah had alleged that Saradha chit fund money was used in the October 2 Burdwan blast. However, government had contradicted the links as alleged by Shah.

PTI Adds:

The district BJP moved the NHRC alleging that the worker was stripped in a closed room and subjected to physical torture by
Trinamool Congress men in Hooghly for attending saffron party President Amit Shah’s rally in Kolkata on November 30.

Hooghly BJP Vice-President Swapan Paul said the district unit approached the NHRC alleging Bansberia town BJP
chief Bishnu Chowdhury was stripped and thrashed in a closed room by local TMC men on December three who sought an explanation why he had attended Shah’s rally and even ordered him to say “Mamata Banerjee zindabad”.

District TMC president Tapan Dasgupta rubbished the allegations and said BJP was resorting to cheap gimmicks to make political inroads. He also wanted to know why the BJP took so long to make the charges public after December three.

Officer-in-charge of Mogra police station Sukhomoy Chakroborty said no formal complaint was lodged by BJP about the matter and their activists came to the police station on Friday on a different issue.

    Dirty country, dirty states, dirty people. Court - useless. Police -- horrible, corrupt, sold out. People - balls-less. Here's the thing, and all it is going to take one action which would wet the pants of all political cl -- listening EC? -- It should not be hard for even a 3rd rated investigator to find out who tortured him. With this type of torture, there would be traces left. Any good investigator would take a week to get to those rascals. And if it is proved they were TMC, ban the party. Let that mamta goto SC. Do something.. or else let the country go to dogs... and BENGALIS, SHAME ON YOU. THIS IS WHAT ALL YOU HAVE??? WHAT A SHAME. AND YOU CALL YOURSELF INTELLECTUALS! SHAME..Even a dictator is better

      Aren't this signs of TMC and Mamata Banerjee getting desperate, ominous straws in the wind of impending doom for Mamata and her party.

          This is really sick. The TMC are nothing more than a bunch of hooligans, bent on terrorising the general potion. They are led by an unstable sick woman who rightly belongs to the dustbin. Why is it that our Sickular parties not protesting at this awful incident? This Mamata woman should be thrown into the dungeons and maybe forced to taste similar medicine on her tongue.
