Trinamool Team Visits Hoogly following Clashes

A day after a clash between members of Trinamool Congress and CPM in which one person was killed and six others were injured, a Trinamool Congress team visited West Bengal’s Hoogly district on Friday.

Led by union Minister of State for Shipping Mukul Roy, the team held talks with Trinamool Congress workers in the three troubled villages – Majhpur, Bardighrui and Chandrabhan – and assessed the situation.

Partha Chattopadhyay, leader of opposition in the state assembly, was also part of the delegation.

During the visit, the team garlanded the body of Ananta Dolui, who was killed in the clashes, and met his family.

Before setting off for visit, Chattopadhyay was quoted as saying by IANS: “We will visit all three violence-hit villages. We’ll talk to our party workers who were attacked by CPI-M-backed goons last morning.”

“We’ll give a report to our party chief Mamata Banerjee about the situation there on our return.”

Dolui was killed and six people, including policemen, were injured as activists of the CPI-M and the Trinamool Congress clashed in the three villages Thursday morning.

When a large police team reached the spot it was met with a hail of bullets, one of which hit Khanakul police station officer-in-charge Sukomal Das. Later, Das was taken to a Kolkata hospital for medical treatment.

According to reports, several police pickets have been erected in the region to avert further violence.

Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee has instructed the district administration to take strong and effective action against the offenders.
