Birbhum Violence Case: TMC Block President Anarul Hussain Arrested After Mamata’s Order
Earlier in the day, Banerjee, who landed at a helipad near Bogtui village promised permanent government jobs to members of the affected families. "Police will ensure strictest punishment is handed out to culprits responsible for the Rampurhat carnage. The case filed before the court should be water-tight," she assured.
Kolkata: Anarul Hussain, the TMC block president of Rampurhat, has been arrested by the West Bengal Police in connection with the brutal killings of 8 people at Bogtui village of Birbhum district. He was arrested from Tarapith in the district within hours of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee directing the police to nab him for not paying attention to local people’s apprehension of possible disturbance in the area, which ultimately snowballed into the carnage, a senior officer said.
Searches were conducted in various parts of the district including Hossain’s residence, after which he was nabbed from Tarapith. Hussain was picked up from near a hotel after police tracked his mobile phone tower location, he said, adding that the local TMC leader will be questioned over the incident. Meanwhile, Rampurhat police station inspector-in-charge Tridib Pramanik was suspended for negligence.
