Agartala, Jan 19: Hours after the Election Commission announced the schedule for Assembly polls in Tripura, a 44-year-old worker of the tribal based party TIPRA (Tipraha Indigenous Progressive Regional Alliance) was killed in Tripura’s Dhalai district, police said on Thursday.

A police spokesman said the murder was non-political and the man was killed due to financial disputes.

Police have so far arrested four persons and are looking for two more absconders in connection with the killing.

TIPRA supremo Pradyot Bikram Manikya Deb Barman said the ruling BJP members attacked Pranajit Namasudhra and he was seriously injured and subsequently succumbed to his injuries in the hospital after midnight on Wednesday.

Police said that some “unknown miscreants” attacked Pranajit Namasudra when he, along with his friend, was returning home in a two-wheeler late on Wednesday evening.

The miscreants, after attacking the victim at Bamancherra area, dragged him out and further assaulted Namasudra, who was subsequently rescued by a police team and taken to hospital where he died during medical treatment.

On Thursday, TIPRA workers tried to take out a rally against the alleged murder of Namasudhra, but were stopped by police personnel. The leaders of the rally argued with the security forces about the death of the party workers and sought justice for him.

The Dhalai district incident occurred after a Congress bike rally came under attack in West Tripura district’s Majlishpur allegedly by BJP workers on Wednesday. Ten Congressmen, including AICC General Secretary Ajay Kumar, suffered injuries in the attack.

Congress leader and party’s lone MLA Sudip Roy Barman alleged that a minister provoked the BJP party workers to attack the Congress rally.

“We have already told the Election Commission that of the 60 assembly constituencies, there is no conducive situation in 5-6 constituencies including Majlishpur constituency to hold the elections fairly and peacefully,” Roy Barman told the media and urged the poll panel to take appropriate measures in these areas.

Elections to the 60-member Tripura Assembly will be held on February 16. Votes will be counted on March 2.
