Saayoni Ghosh’s Video Post Led To Her Arrest: Sources
TMC Youth Congress chief Saayoni Ghosh has been arrested in Tripura for trying to mow down BJP workers at a public meeting.
She was detained 24 hours before a planned visit by TMC’s national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee.
BJ Reddy, Additional SP (Urban), West Tripura said that Ghosh has been arrested based on preliminary evidence and a case under sections 307, 153 of IPC has been registered against her.
This comes after TMC MP Sushmita Dev claimed that their workers were also roughed up by BJP supporters outside the East Agartala Women’s police station.
A police official said that a BJP worker lodged a complaint that when a street corner gathering was being addressed by Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Saturday night, Ghosh arrived there and shouted “Khela hobey” (game will happen).
ত্রিপুরার "মুখ্য" মন্ত্রীর সভায় হাতে গুনে ৫০ জন লোক। এর থেকে বেশি আমাদের ক্যান্ডিডেটদের সভায় দেখা যাচ্ছে। ত্রিপুরার মা-মাটি-মানুষের সমর্থনে চোখে চোখ রেখে খেলা হবে ও বিজেপির গুন্ডারাজের অবসান ঘটবে।— Saayoni Ghosh (@sayani06) November 20, 2021

She also mocked the gathering saying that not even 50 people were present in the gathering.
Meanwhile, TMC’s national general secretary Abhishek Banerjee in a tweet accused the BJP government in Tripura of brazenly disregarding Supreme Court orders on rights of political parties to hold peaceful protests.
