CPI-M seeks Tripura IG’s intervention against alleged 23 BJP attackers

CPI-M state committee secretary Jitendra Chowdhury alleged that the local people told the delegation that on May 31, about 100 bike-borne BJP workers, some armed, carried out attacks on houses of known CPI-M workers in various villages of Mohanpur constituency

AGARTALA:

The opposition, Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M), on June 10, wrote a letter to the Inspector General of Tripura Police (Law and Order) urging him to take legal action against 23 people, who are alleged Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) supporters, for unleashing a “reign of terror” in Mohanpur Sub-Division of Tripura’s West District.

In the letter to the IG, Arindam Nath, CPI-M state committee secretary Jitendra Chowdhury said that a party delegation, which included him, paid a visit to the terror-stricken areas of Mohanpur Sub-Division, which happens to be the assembly constituency of Tripura’s Law and education minister Ratan Lal Nath, on June 2.

“We visited the areas namely Tarangar, Tulabagan, Bijoynagar, Kalagachia, Gangagatipur, Harinakhola, Chhechuria, Kaklaia, Sat-Dubia and Ghosh Para, among others. We met the people who were subjected to physical torture, intimidation and threatened with dire consequences,” the CPI-M leader wrote in his letter.

He also alleged that the local people told the delegation that on May 31 about 100 bike-borne BJP workers, some armed, carried out attacks on houses of known CPI-M workers in various villages of Mohanpur constituency.

“The armed miscreants without provocation and deterrence on the part of police carried on intruding into the selective houses and shops of CPI-M leaders, cadres and common supporters and physically assaulted whoever they came across, including the women, at some places. The miscreants threatened the villagers everywhere with dire consequences if they are seen in any of the opposition parties’ programmes except the BJP’s. The police did not make any attempt to prevent the miscreants from what they were doing. Complaints were lodged with the police, and as expected, no arrests were made,” he said.

Chowdhury also mentioned the names of 23 BJP supporters, who had allegedly carried out the attacks, in the letter.

“After visiting the areas and interacting with the victims, we realized that the law and order in that area is now practically under the grip of the miscreants, who are aided and abetted by ruling forces. Under the circumstances, may I request you to treat my complaint as an FIR and send it to the respective police stations with a direction to initiate legal steps against the miscreants mentioned above,” the CPI-M leader added.
