Congress Supporter Killed, Trinamul Denied Charges of Killing
Malda, November 14, 2012: A Congress supporter was brutally killed in Kaliachak. Taken out of his house 35 year old Mabud Sheikh was brutally chopped to death. The incident took place at village Bamangram under Kaliachak Police Station. Riayjul Sheikh, father of the victim has already lodged complaint against a few miscreants of the locality although none was arrested so far.
It is learnt that hawker by profession and father of three children, Mabud was at his home yesterday when some of his friends called him by mobile phone. Wife Setara Biwi informed that they had invited her husband for a picnic. Mabud went out around 5.30 pm but never returned since then. This morning his body was found in an orchard, just a km away from his house. The body had deep wounds of heavy sharp weapon; worse, the lower portion of his right leg was amputated. The dispensed limb was not found anywhere. Police were informed and the body was sent for post mortem.
It is learnt that a few days back a clash broke out near Kaliachak bus stand where Mabud himself was got involved. It is feared that last night’s murder might have any connection with that incident.
Local Congress leader Abdus Salam said, “Mabud was an active Congress worker. It may be a planned murder by the miscreants backed by Trinamul Congress. We want an exemplary punishment of the miscreants.”
Congress MLA Abu Naser Khan Choudhury too claimed that Mabud was an active Congress worker and vowed to meet the family of the victim.”
Local Trinamul Congress leader Mojahar Hossain, however, rubbished the allegation claiming, “It was the case of internal feud of Congress.”
Superintendent of police Jayanta Pal refused to describe it as a political murder, “The victim too had several cases against him. It was apparently a case of old rivalry between two groups of anti socials.” Pal said that police had begun enquiry after getting complaint against seven persons.
