Agartala: Trinamool Congress spokesperson Kunal Ghosh was rushed to a private hospital in Agartala after he complained of uneasiness during questioning by the Tripura police at New Capital Complex (NCC) police station. According to party sources, his condition is stable.
Ghosh, along with Tripura TMC leader Subal Bhowmik, was summoned by the police for interrogation in connection with a case. They are accused of topping a government employee from performing his duty.
After coming out of the police station, Bhowmik said that six of them including the national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee, went to Khowai police station to see their youth leaders and were welcomed by the police. “However, later on, to our shock, Tripura Police booked us under different sections,” he added.
On August 8, TMC leader and Member of Parliament Abhishek Banerjee along with West Bengal education minister Bratya Basu, MP Dola Sen, TMC spokesperson Kunal Ghosh, Tripura leader Subal Bhowmik and Prakash Das had the police station to meet the youth leaders who were arrested by the police.
Khowai district superintendent of police Kiran Kumar had confirmed that the Khowai police filed a case against the TMC leaders under section 186 for voluntarily obstructing public servants on duty and for common intention under section 34 of the Indian Penal Code.
The investigating officer said that the TMC leaders were summoned to appear for interrogation in connection with the case, and accordingly, they were questioned for around 20 minutes.
“We have served the summons to all the accused persons and they have to appear before the police for investigation of the case,” NCC police station officer in-officer Subimal Bhowmik said.
