Twelve injured in TMC-BJP clashes
Twelve persons, including a few women, were injured in a spate of clashes that began on Friday night between BJP and Trinamul workers over alleged graft in enlisting Amphan beneficiaries at Nazat in South 24-Parganas’ Sandeshkhali block.
The clash, which continued till Saturday afternoon, prompted the district administration to deploy police force in the area.
BJP claimed that at least 10 of the injured were its party supporters who had been allegedly beaten up brutally by “Trinamul goons”.
The local Trinamul leadership, however, refuted the allegation.
“The BJP instigated the villagers and that led to the clashes,” a Trinamul leader in Sandeshkhali said.
An officer of Nazat police said: “We have received two separate complaints from either side (both the parties). However, nobody has so far been arrested.”
