TMC's Saayoni Ghosh detained for questioning in Tripura
Tripura police on Sunday detained West Bengal Trinamool Congress leader Saayoni Ghosh for questioning following a complaint by a ruling BJP worker that she had disturbed a street corner meeting of Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Saturday night, according to an official.
She was detained 24 hours before a planned visit by TMC's national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee after being called in for questioning in a police station.
TMC leaders alleged that their workers were also roughed up by BJP supporters outside the East Agartala Women's police station.
Banerjee in a tweet accused the BJP government in Tripura of brazenly disregarding Supreme Court orders on rights of political parties to hold peaceful protests.
"@BjpBiplab has become so UNABASHEDLY BRAZEN that now even SUPREME COURT ORDERS DOESN'T SEEM TO BOTHER HIM," Banerjee tweeted.
