Earlier this month, Shova Majumdar claimed that she and her son were beaten up by TMC “goons” and that they threatened her son not to disclose the incident to anyone. However, the TMC had dismissed the allegation as “false”. Police, however, claimed that the mother of the BJP supporter was not attacked and that her face was swollen owing to some ailment
The matter is under investigation and those behind the incident are yet to be identified as they were wearing masks. The incident is being probed from all angles, including political rivalry and family dispute, an officer had said.
Head of BJP IT cell and also a co-in-charge for West Bengal, Amit Malviya tweeted, “This daughter of Bengal, someone’s mother, someone’s sister… is dead. She was brutally assaulted by TMC cadres but Mamata Banerjee didn’t have a word of compassion for her. Who will heal the wounds of her family? TMC’s politics of violence has bruised Bengal’s soul…”
