A woman Bharatiya Janata Party worker used to be shot in her head in a village in south Bengal allegedly by goons backed by the ruling Trinamool Congress on Monday.
BJP leaders identified the woman as Radharani Naskar. She is a BJP worker from Bishnupur in South 24 Parganas. The victim needed to be rushed to a state-run hospital.
Her condition used to be stated to be critical till reports final came in.
“One person has been detained for questioning. Investigation is happening,” said an officer of the Bishnupur police station.
While the BJP has alleged that she used to be shot by goons backed by the TMC, the ruling party refuted the allegations saying that it used to be a clash between two neighborhoods.
“The miscreants had targeted the victim’s husband. But as he used to be not at home they attacked his wife and shot her. The TMC has unleashed terrorism on BJP leaders, workers and supporters. Police are a mute spectator,” said Dilip Ghosh, president of the BJP’s West Bengal unit.
TMC’s Rajya Sabha member Subhasis Chakraborty said: “The TMC isn’t at all related to this. What I gathered from the locality is that it used to be a clash between two neighborhoods. The accused will be soon arrested.”
