Trinamool Youth Congress President Saayoni Ghosh was arrested by Tripura Police on Sunday for allegedly causing a ruckus at a public meeting of Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb.
B Jagadishwar Reddy, Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP) West, Tripura said, “She has been arrested based on preliminary evidence. We have registered a case under sections 307, 153 of the Indian Penal Code. Action will be taken against those who attacked TMC workers as well after identification, an FIR has been filed.”
When she was being brought to the East Agartala Women Police Station in West Tripura district, TMC alleged that several BJP workers gheraoed the site and attacked its party workers.
Trinamool Congress leaders Sushmita Dev and Subal Bhowmik have slammed the Bharatiya Janata Party for alleged abuse of police power and vandalisation of police station by its party workers.
Bhowmik alleged that at least four TMC workers were injured in the incident today.
“They started their drama from the morning itself. We are here with Saayoni, without any notice whatsoever. The ruling party has been isolated. They will lose the upcoming civic body elections which will start on November 25. BJP hooligans vandalised the police station, beat up the police as well. We have seen such administration and government for the first time. This is all pre-planned. Our four to five workers have been injured,” Bhowmik told ANI.
Sushmita Dev while talking to ANI also called out the police for allegedly abusing their power.”They have attacked the Thana again where @sayani06 is under arrest and also attacked our Convenor Shubol Bhowmick’s house in Agartala. @Tripura_Police I have been trying to call the IG & DGP but to no avail. This is mayhem,” Dev tweeted.
