Agartala, Jan 22: Tripura Police have arrested four BJP workers including a BJP Corporator of Ward number 51 of Agartala Municipal Corporation (AMC) for allegedly attacking a Congress worker. However, the police have also arrested the Congress worker after BJP filed a counter FIR against him.

Speaking on the issue, Sub-Divisional Police Officer (SDPO) Ajay Kumar Das said on January 21 late at night in Subhas Nagar Housing Complex in Agartala an incident took place where one Pankaj Barman was detained and attacked by BJP workers.

In his complaint, Pankaj alleged that around 10 PM yesterday some people detained him and attacked him severely as he is a supporter of Congress and he came under attack by BJP supporters,” the SDPO said.

SDPO Das said Pankaj has filed a complaint against nine people mentioning their names.

“We have lodged the FIR under section 341/325/379 (a) and 34 IPC. Following this, yesterday at midnight, we arrested some people among them one is Sushanta Chandra Bhowmik, Tinku Debnath, Bhaskar Paul, and Khokan Das.
