“All allegations leveled against me and other party leaders are completely baseless”: TMC leader Kunal Ghosh

“All the allegations leveled against me and other party leaders are completely baseless. They are scared of TMC’s growth in the state and hence they are trying to harass us.

I have been given a notice today by the Tripura police and they have asked me to appear within 10 days for interrogation. I will comply with the notice and appear before the police in 2 to 3 days but all I want is the interrogation session to be video recorded”

The incident on August 8

On August 7, youth TMC leaders visited Tripura and their cars were attacked and stones were pelted at the youth leaders. Police arrested the youth leaders on grounds of violation of Covid norms.

The very next day, the senior TMC leaders visited Tripura to release the detained ones. The youth leaders claimed that they were kept for hours without any food or water.

The youth leaders were released and one of them have been taken to SSKM Hospital in Kolkata for treatment.
