Caught on Camera: Trinamool leaders kick woman BJP supporter, throw her to the ground in presence of cops; videos go viral
In front of camera, Trinamool leaders and activists were recorded viciously kicking a woman and throwing her to the ground during a protest in the presence of cops and TV news crew. The woman who was hit twice is reportedly a BJP supporter.
The videos, which have gone viral, were shot last Wednesday, the day of BJP’s 12-hour Bengal bandh.
The victim Nilima De was attacked by two leaders in two different incidents. Police has so far not arrested anyone in connection with the case.
The video of the first attack was widely reported by TV news channel on the bandh day and the video of the second attack was circulated on social media on Sunday.
De Sarkar is one of those BJP supporters who had blocked railways in Barasat about 40 km from Kolkata on September 26. It is there Trinamool supporters led by the local panchayat chief Arshaduzzaman attacked the BJP supporters including De Sarkar who was trying to run away. She was kicked and lathi-charged till when a policeman came to rescue her.
When a reporter went to take her interview over the incident, she was brazenly assaulted again.
According to the BJP, the attacker in the blue shirt who was seen on video is Qutubuddin, an aide of Arshanduzzaman, the man who kicked Ms De Sarkar first.
This is the same lady Nilima De Sarkar who was "kicked" by tmc leader Arshadujjaman. Look how his accomplice Qutubuddin is thrashing her openly when she is relaying the incident to media ! @BJP4Bengal @me_locket @VijayaRahatkar @MrsGandhi pic.twitter.com/swr35EOVK9— Keya Ghosh (@keyakahe) September 30, 2018
