IN ANOTHER INSTANCE OF POLITICAL BRUTALITY PRESENTLY REIGNING IN WEST BENGAL BY THE REACTIONARY FORCES, OUR ONE MORE COMRADE HAS BEEN ATTACKED YESTERDAY IN BARASAT.
Com. Abdus Samad, BPM, Majlispur B.O. (Deganga S.O.) in Barasat Division was returning home last night from Barasat H.P.O. with his wife Com. Khaleda Yasmin, who is a member of local Sasan Gram Panchayet.
After disembarking the bus at about 8 P.M., just a few minutes to reach their home, they were attacked by armed political miscreants and violently battered. Police came about midnight and somehow managed to rescue the injured couple from their home and send them for treatment. Com. Yasmin has been released after primary treatment, but bruised Com. Abdus Samad has been moved to Barasat District Hospital in requirement of critical care.
Com. Khaleda Yasmin is also the 'Karmadhakshya' of 'Ban-o-Bhumisanskar Samiti' of Barasat-2 Panchayet Samiti and her role has frustrated the oblique intentions of political opposition. She was threatened few days back to resign from her posts or face dire consequences. As the dedicated and bold family did not bow down in front of the pressure, the forces of anarchy and reactions became aggressive to kill them.
Comrades of Barasat Division are constantly present to take care of Com. Samad. Com. Janardan Majumdar, Circle Secretary, Group-C, is going to Barasat District Hospital to see him tomorrow.
We do not have sufficient words to condemn these miscreants and their political patrons in West Bengal.
