Agartala: Expressing concern on Tripura’s law and order, senior CPI(M) leader Jitendra Chaudhury said the northeastern state had recorded 16 murders after the BJP returned to power for the second time in March.
Chaudhury told reporters on Sunday, besides the killings, the state had also witnessed 78 deaths by suicide, 12 rapes and 137 molestation cases since March 10.
The CPI(M) leader said 17 cases of domestic violence had also been recorded in the last three months.
“The crime chart during BJP’s second innings reflects the state’s overall law and order situation. This is the true picture of the party’s good governance claims”, he said.
