Minister’s son in law and six other TMC supporters released on bail
Malda, 16 April, 2014: Much to the relief of the state’s ruling party, district Trinamul president and social welfare minister Sabitri Mitra’s son in law Samadip Sarkar alias Tinku along with other six Trinamul supporters, who were arrested for manhandling the election commission officials on 10 April in Manikchak, were released on bail on Wednesday.
After they were produced in court today, judge Pradip Roy released them on bail against a bond of Rs 2000 per accused. He also ordered that the accused would have to report to the investigating officer every alternate day till 29 April, the next hearing day.
Mitra said, “We are happy with the court’s today’s decision. We from the very first day said that the EC officials stopped our party candidate’s car and thus provoked our party supporters.”
Malda north Congress candidate and district Congress president Mausam Noor, however, said, “Trinamul has humiliated a constitutional body like election commission. Police have not been playing an impartial role. Common people are disgusted with such state of affairs. They would give Trinamul a befitting reply in the ensuing Lok Sabha election.”
