BJP team in Tripura today

Itanagar, July 27 (PTI): A BJP delegation, led by its vice-president S.S. Ahluwalia, will visit some places in the state tomorrow where “terror” was allegedly let loose by the ruling CPM activists after the recent panchayat polls, the party said today.

President of the state unit of BJP Sudheendra Dasgupta said the delegation would arrive here tomorrow and visit some parts of Rajnagar rural block in South Tripura district, Matabari block of Gomati district and Dakshin Maheshpur village of Sipahijala district.

The delegation will also meet officiating governor P.B. Acharya.

Dasgupta had alleged that he along with state party secretary Tapas Bhattacharya and two other members were attacked by CPM activists at Dakshin Maheshpur in Sipahijala district on July 22 and police allegedly remained a silent spectator. He alleged that the CPM cadres had let loose terror after announcements of the panchayat elections results on July 17.

Sipahijala superintendent of police S.R. Das said on the basis of Dasgupta’s complaint, assistant sub-inspector Swapan Kar, who was in-charge of the police escort, was suspended and a probe was in progress.
