TMC calls for arrest of suspects who ‘attacked’ Sushmita Dev’s car
Following an alleged attack on the car of Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Sushmita Dev in Tripura, a party delegation met with the Deputy Inspector General of the Tripura Police on Saturday and submitted a memorandum demanding the arrest of the people involved in the “attack”.
A five-member TMC delegation consisting of MP Sushmita Dev, MP Shantu Sen, West Bengal law minister Moloy Ghatak and local leaders uploaded Tripura DIG L Darlong and submitted a memorandum to police to arrest the culprits, who would have “obtained the support of the party in power and part of the police”.
Speaking to the media, Dev said: “It was hooliganism and foul play in broad daylight. We also have witnesses to the incident. Earlier, our chief and secretary general Abhishek Banerjee also visited the state. about a month ago. He was attacked, we lodged a complaint with the police, but no one has been arrested yet. That is not the way democracy works.
She further warned of further unrest in the state to seek justice and said the party would democratically show its strength and protest to demand justice from the state government.
“Tripura is not a state outside the country where different laws are applicable. We want justice and the arrest of the culprits. If there is no action taken by the state government according to the law , then we will show our strength democratically and protest to demand justice. We will stand up and fight back, “she added.
Earlier on Friday, the cars of MP TMC and her supporters were reportedly vandalized by strangers in Amtali, near Agartala. TMC alleged that workers from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were behind the attack.
Amtali police have filed a complaint and an investigation is underway.
