Dead: Bengal police officer injured in June clash between Trinamul, Congress

Suri (Birbhum), Jul 28 (PTI): An Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) of police, who suffered splinter injuries during a clash between workers of Trinamul Congress and the Communist Party of India (Marxist), died in a private hospital on Monday.

“Assistant Sub-Inspector of Police Amit Chakarborty (32) died of his injuries at a private hospital in Durgapur this morning. He suffered from serious splinter injuries on June 3 when crude bombs were hurled at him during the clash at Dubrajpur,” Superintendent of Police of Birbhum district, Alok Rajoria, told PTI.

Chakraborty, a resident of Bandel in Hoogly district, was posted at Dubrajpur police station and rushed to the spot with policemen after hearing about the clash between TMC and CPM workers, he said.

He was caught in the clash and was injured in the abdomen when a bomb was hurled at him, Rajoria said.

The clash was a sequel to a dispute over the availability of jobs at Gopalpur village under the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act.
