Sagar, Nov. 13: Trinamul Congress MLA Bankim Hazra’s daughter was kidnapped on Sagar Island today.
District Trinamul leader Sakti Mondal said eyewitnesses saw unknown miscreants force Sefali into a car and drive away while she was returning from college. They chased the car, but the driver sped away.
Hazra said he had been receiving threat calls for fighting against corrupt panchayat officials. “I was apprehending something, but could not imagine that they would kidnap my daughter,” he said.
