Tripura: Bail granted to youth TMC leader Saayoni Ghosh

News Desk: A local court in Tripura on Monday granted bail to Trinamool Congress youth wing leader and actor Saayoni Ghosh, arrested a day earlier for allegedly “disturbing” the chief minister Biplab Deb’s public meeting.

Police in Tripura also slapped charges on Ghosh for allegedly promoting enmity between people, attempt to murder, criminal intimidation and criminal conspiracy, apart from disrupting a civic poll rally led by Biplab Deb on Saturday.

According to multiple reports citing police, Ghosh chanted Trinamool Congress’ iconic slogan ‘khela hobe’ at the street-side meeting addressed by the chief minister. Soon after, the Bharatiya Janata Party filed an FIR against her at the East Agartala Women’s police station.

However, Trinamool Congress general secretary Kunal Ghosh claimed that someone attending Biplab Deb’s rally spotted Saayoni Ghosh in a vehicle and greeted her with “Didi, khela hobe” and the youth leader replied with “haan, khela hobe”

Ghosh’s arrest came a day before Trinamool Congress national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee’s scheduled roadshow in Agartala.

Trinamool Congress Rajya Sabha MP Sushmita Dev claimed the motive behind Ghosh’s arrest in the alleged ‘attempt to murder case’ was to disrupt Abhishek Banerjee’s rally. It is not immediately known if the Trinamool Congress leader’s roadshow continued as planned even though he was reportedly in Tripura’s state capital till the filing of this report.
