Locals find bomb in TMC leader Arabul Islam’s house a day after he being sent to police custody

Trinamool Congress leader Arabul Islam was dealt another blow when the day after his arrest in connection with the killing of a supporter of an independent candidate, it was reported that locals recovered handmade bombs from the leader’s house in Bhangar, in 24 Parganas South district.

Officers of Baruipur police district conducted a raid jointly with Kashipur and Bhangor police in the area around the house of arrested Trinamool Congress leader Arabul Islam and a large number of bombs and materials for making bombs which were stored underground in a mango garden near his house were seized.

The arrest on Friday was made as per chief minister’s instructions, and he was produced before the court and remanded in police custody for 10 days.

All this transpired after the shootout on the Save Land Livelihood Environment Protection Committee rally on Friday afternoon where a participant, Hafijul Molla, was shot dead.

Meanwhile, the supporters of the Jami Raksha committee put up roadblocks in many areas of Kashipur demanding the immediate arrest of Khude, Arabul’s brother, and all the persons involved in Friday’s attack in which a supporter of an Independent candidate backed by the Jami Raksha Committee was shot dead at Natunhat.

Arabul Islam cannot boast of an esteemed reputation in the past as well. Instances of he being involved in violence and of his arrests and expulsion have been reported several times in the past.

When it comes to politics in West Bengal, violence has often been the currency of choice for the political parties. They have resorted to brute force and coercion for attaining individual benefits. The party workers have often been caught on the wrong foot, breaking laws fearless of the repercussions. The upcoming Panchayat polls have turned West Bengal into a battlefield, with the Calcutta High Court suspending all the poll processes of West Bengal’s upcoming Panchayat elections. The order came in the backdrop of serious violence across the state with regards to the Panchayat polls. Besides violence, the TMC establishment has been accused of openly intimidating people by carrying out armed rallies.

Besides that, ahead of the West Bengal panchayat elections, voters are claiming that they are deprived of the Centre’s prominent schemes such as Ujjwala Yojana (gas connection) and Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (house) to name a few.
Voters are of the view that they would keep development in mind before they exercise their electoral franchise. It’s time Trinamool keeps the murky politics aside and gets down to serious business.
