North 24 Parganas: Crude bombs were reportedly hurled at BJP workers, just before a scheduled rally by BJP MP from Barrackpore, Arjun Singh on Saturday. The party has accused the Trinamool Congress for the alleged attack. Four BJP workers have been reportedly injured.
The state unit of the BJP had scheduled a protest march against the rise of terror, following the attack on one of its members and also against corruption in the distribution of relief to the victims of the cyclone Amphan.
The incident took place in Shymnagar in North 24 Parganas in West Bengal, where bombs exploded when BJP workers gathered at the spot.
“TMC leaders and police under the leadership of Joint Commissioner Ajay Thakur have tried to disrupt our rally by creating chaos, and unleashing violence. A young boy has suffered critical head injuries in the crude bomb blast. He may die at any moment. 200 police officers are at my house now. How can you lead a democratic protest in Bengal under these circumstances?” BJP leader Arjun Singh was quoted as saying.
