Kolkata, April 17 : A Trinamool Congress leader was allegedly shot dead by a group of assailants inside the party office in West Bengal’s Nadia district, police said on Monday.

Dulal Biswas, a panchayat leader of Nadia district’s Bagula, was fatally shot multiple times inside the party office on Sunday evening. “Biswas suffered multiple bullet injuries in in the abdomen. He was rushed to the Krishnanagar Hospital, where he was declared dead,” said a senior district police official.

Biswas’ son, who was present outside the party office during the incident, claimed to have recognised a few miscreants to be active members of local Bharatiya Janata Party and Left Front units.

“I was standing in front of the party office when 10-12 men came on bike and instantly started firing at my father. I recognised a few of them. They are active members of CPI-M and BJP units,” he said.

The state Trinamool leadership accused the BJP of active involvement in the murder and said no one involved in the incident would be spared by the administration.

“This is an attempt to politically weaken the Trinamool Congress in the area. We are all beside the bereaved family and the party activists here. The administration would strictly handle the issue,” said party Secretary General Partha Chatterjee.

“This is a cowardly act. We have got the news that some of the miscreants have active connection with the Bharatiya Janata Party. The BJP is doing the politics of terror under the leadership of Dilip Ghosh. No one will be spared in this incident,” Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee claimed.

Refuting the allegation, BJP state president Dilip Ghosh alleged the Trinamool Congress was trying to cover up its shortcomings and internal feud by putting the blame on BJP and claimed that the people of the state won’t believe in these false allegations.

New Delhi, April 21: A six-month-old girl was allegedly kidnapped, raped and murdered in Madhya Pradesh’s Indore early on Friday, reported news agency PTI.

The incident came to light when the blood-soaked body of the infant was recovered from the basement of a building in Rajwada area. The post-mortem, which was conducted at state-run MY Hospital, suggested the girl might have been raped before being murdered as her private part bore an injury mark.

Police said the accused, later identified as Sunil Bheel (21), was seen carrying the infant on his shoulder on CCTV footage. “The body of the infant was recovered from the basement of a commercial building in Rajwada area. The accused, Sunil Bheel, had kidnapped her in the morning when she was asleep with her parents outside the Rajwada Fort. The accused was sleeping close to the family,” HC Mishra, Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Indore, said, adding that Bheel was known to the family.

“The accused is seen carrying the infant in CCTV images at around 4:45 am. He then took her to the basement of the building, some 50 metres away from where the family was sleeping. Her body was recovered later in the afternoon,” Mishra said.

“The infant had an injury on her head. The accused probably threw her to the ground. However, only the post-mortem report will verify if she died due to this or whether she was smothered,” Mishra stated. He further added that Bheel would be arrested soon.

Meanwhile, Condemning the incident, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, “The rape incident in Indore has shook my soul, such a heinous act with a small child! There is a need for our society to look within itself. The accused has already been arrested and we will ensure that he gets punished for his crime as soon as possible.”
