The TMC has accused the BJP of being behind the allegations.

The BJP, the main opposition party in the state, has seized on the issue to mount a strong attack on Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and her party in the run up to the Lok Sabha polls.

Local women have accused Trinamul Congress (TMC) leader Sheikh Shahjahan and his supporters of land grab and sexual assault under coercion.

Shahjahan is absconding following his suspected involvement in a violent attack on Enforcement Directorate officials who had gone to raid his house in connection with a corruption case.
