Mousumi Das, district Vice President of Mahila Morcha Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) was allegedly attacked by “Trinamool Congress-backed” goons at her residence in the Malatipur area of Malda.
Following that, she was taken to the nearby hospital for treatment.
Mousumi’s husband, Pintu Mandal said, “She was sleeping in her room at our house when two unidentified persons entered and started beating her and also stabbed her. Trinamool Congress-backed goons are involved in the attack”.
However, Shuvomoay Basu, spokesperson of Trinamool Congress (TMC), Malda refuted the allegation. He said, “We have faith in the police investigation. They will find out the reason behind the attack if it has happened.”
