West Bengal: Ex-TMC member stripped naked, thrashed by TMC goons for joining Congress party in Murshidabad

"I was a member of the Trinamool Congress. I supported the Congress party so they thrashed me brutally. The TMC miscreants disrobed and assaulted me on the road," the woman narrated.

On Sunday (July 23) afternoon, a woman was reportedly stripped naked and beaten by miscreants associated with the ruling Trinamool Congress party. The incident took place in Burwan village in the Murshidabad district of West Bengal.

As per a report by Aaj Tak Bangla, the woman was thrashed and sexually assaulted by TMC goons for joining the Congress party. When two Congress workers tried to save the victim, they were also beaten by the miscreants.

The Trinamool Congress goons also attacked the family members of the two Congress workers, who came to the rescue of the woman. The victim and three others were admitted to the local hospital, before being transferred to the Kandi Subdivision hospital.

Citing local sources, Aaj Tak Bangla reported that the woman was a member of the ruling Trinamool Congress party. After being denied a ticket in the panchayat election, she contested the polls as an independent candidate.

The victim later joined the Congress party. After TMC goons learnt about the matter, they beat her black and blue. “I was a member of the Trinamool Congress. I supported the Congress party so they thrashed me brutally. The TMC miscreants disrobed and assaulted me on the road,” the woman narrated.

“They stripped me naked and beat me,” she told an Aaj Tak Bangla reporter. The incident led to an atmosphere of chaos and unrest in the area. On being informed about the matter, the police rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control.

While speaking about the matter, BJP national spokesperson Amit Malviya said, “Another day, another woman is assaulted and stripped naked in West Bengal’s Burwan (Murshidabad). She was assaulted by TMC workers because she supported an independent candidate, who is now with Congress.

“Mamata Banerjee has maintained stoic silence. So has Rahul Gandhi,” he emphasised. The development comes days amid public outrage over a viral video from Manipur wherein two women were gang-raped and paraded naked by a mob of men.
