Metiabruz, located on the fringes of Kolkata, is often identified as mini-Pakistan or a place that has a high crime rate and more. In fact, in 2016, then an MLA candidate of West Bengal’s ruling party and now Kolkata’s Mayor, Bobby Firhad Hakim had stoked controversy by referring to the area as ‘mini Pakistan’.

Hours before polling had started in West Bengal in the fifth phase of assembly election in 2016, Firhad Hakim, had reportedly told a Pakistani journalist that his constituency was a ‘mini-Pakistan’. It soon engulfed into a major controversy after the report got published in a Pakistan’s leading newspaper.

West Bengal has become a hotbed for political crimes, where especially BJP and RSS workers have been facing the wrath of TMC goons in the behest of their party head Mamata Banerjee.

In yet, another spine chilling incident, Bandhu Prakash Pal, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) worker, his pregnant wife and their six-year-old son were found murdered by unknown miscreants in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district on October 10.

Reportedly, Bandhu Prakash was a school teacher who worked in Gosaigram Sahapara Primary School. He also worked as an insurance agent in the locality.

Some sections of social media had indicated that the murder of the RSS worker and his family had a communal angle to it as Murshidabad has seen many such cases in the past, but no such angle has been reported in the case yet.
