Bengal: Police again stopped CPI(M) leaders from going to Daluakhaki

Last Monday, Bamangachhi Gram Panchayat member and Trinamool leader Saifuddin Lashkar was shot dead under Jaynagar police station of South 24 Parganas. After this, the houses of many CPI(M) supporters were attacked by an angry mob in Naskarpada area of ​​Daluakhaki village. More than 16 houses were vandalized and set on fire. People are still terrorized by this incident. At the same time, on Sunday, the police once again stopped the CPI(M) delegation carrying relief material for the victims from going to Daluakhaki village. They were not allowed to proceed beyond Gudamerhat area. There was a scuffle between CPI(M) leaders and policemen on this matter. CPI(M) workers also raised slogans against the police. Sayan Bandyopadhyay, who was part of the delegation, said, “People associated with our party were going to Daluakhaki village with relief material to help the victims, but the police stopped them. Section 144 is also not applicable at that place.”

Accused of vandalizing and arsoning people’s houses

West Bengal Republican Committee leader Monalisa Sinha says that houses of more than a dozen people were vandalized and set on fire in Daluakhaki. Those people have become homeless. The condition of children is also pathetic. In such a situation, the affected families are in dire need of help. He alleged that the police was working on behalf of the ruling party and efforts were being made to control law and order through civic volunteers. Baruipur SDPO Atish Biswas says that maintaining peace in the area is his first priority. This is the reason why only people living in the village are being allowed to move, not outsiders. It is noteworthy that last Tuesday also a delegation of CPI(M) leaders was going there with relief material, but the police stopped them before reaching Daluakhaki village. Apart from CPI(M) leaders, leaders of Indian Secular Front (ISF) and Congress were also not allowed there.
