Fresh arrests were made in West Bengal after an intra party clash of All India Trinamool Congress workers at Bhangar in South 24 Parganas district.
The police arrested four people on Sunday for the intra party clash of AITC supporters in Bhangar, in which two persons died on Saturday. Three persons were arrested on Saturday, after violence broke out. South 24 Parganas district Superintendent of Police Praveen Tripathi said all seven were produced at a district court and have been remanded to five days’ police custody.
‘No confidence motion’
Two factions of the AITC were at loggerheads over a no-confidence motion against the local panchayat pradhan. Former AITC MLA Arabul Islam, who is believed to be heading one of the factions, said he had discussed the matter with party secretary general Partha Chatterjee. Refusing to comment on whether the AITC would take action against Mr. Islam, Mr. Chatterjee said it was the party’s ‘internal matter’.
“The party does not support violence. No one will be spared, steps will be taken against anyone found guilty of inciting violence in the State,” Mr. Chatterjee said and added that the party was yet to receive a report on the violence.
