Alleging that TMC goons were behind the attack, Locket Chatterjee said the ruling TMC wants to silence the voice of protest by the Mahila Morcha.
The Trinamool Congress denied the charge and claimed that the attack was the result of the infighting in the state unit of BJP. No arrests have been made so far, police said.
