Kolkata: A Congress woman activist was lynched allegedly by the ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) activists at Ghoramara in Murshidabad district of West Bengal on Sunday morning.

Khatun Bewa (64), was a die-hard Congress supporter and also an ardent follower of state Congress president and veteran party Lok Sabha member Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, said her younger brother, Bilal Mondal.

According to Bilal, the attackers showered abuses in front of her house, which Khatun Bewa resisted.

“Some of the miscreants having the backing of the ruling party started showering abuses in front of her house. As my elder sister protested, she was lynched in the process. We demand exemplary punishment for the culprits,” Mondal said.

District Trinamool Congress leader Ashok Das denied the allegations and claimed that the unfortunate event was the result of a quarrel between neighbours.

“Congress leadership in the district is trying to add political colour by unnecessarily dragging our name in this,” he said.

With this fresh killing, the total number of casualties in the state has touched 56 since June 8, when the polling date for the panchayat election was announced.
