The house of a worker of the Indian Secular Front (ISF) was set ablaze and his parents assaulted by alleged Trinamul supporters at Bhangar in South 24-Parganas late on Sunday night.

Bhangar, on the fringes of Calcutta, has been witnessing frequent incidents of post-poll violence ever since the ruling Trinamul lost the seat to the ISF by 26,151 votes.

ISF leaders said that unable to digest defeat, the local Trinamul leadership was selectively attacking Opposition activists, Kutub Mullick being one. His father Rafiqul Mullick, a farmer, said Kutub had to flee after May 2 “for his life”.

Local Trinamul leaders did not comment on the charges levelled against them.
