Kolkata, March 31 IANS | 5 months ago

A Trinamool Congress leader Monday said the party was mulling legal action against a West Bengal government official who has accused a legislator of threatening to behead him for removing posters of party supremo Mamata Banerjee.


Party general secretary Mukul Roy rubbished the allegations and accused the officer of maligning the legislator with an ulterior motive.

"It is clear that he is working with an ulterior motive and at the behest of some political party, he has lodged the complaint to malign the Trinamool and its legislator Dhiman Roy. We are exploring legal actions against Gayen," Roy told media persons here.

Block Development Officer of Habra II in North 24 Parganas district, Dinabandhu Gayen, in his FIR to the Ashokenagar police station March 26, alleged that local legislator Dhiman Roy abused him on telephone after a Model Code of Conduct team removed the posters and festoons bearing Banerjee's pictures from public places March 24.

Gayen in his complaint also alleged that about 25 Trinamool miscreants barged into his room and insulted and assaulted him and threatened that if the posters were not put up again he and his Model Code of Conduct team will be "beheaded and their legs chopped off".

Dhiman Roy and state Food Minister Jyotipriya Mallick also questioned Gayen's complaint.

"There is no doubt he is acting under the influence of rival political parties. I wonder how he came to know about the names of the 25 Trinamool workers whom he has mentioned in the complaint," said Mallick.

Following the complaint, 10 Trinamool workers were arrested Sunday but were subsequently granted bail by a court.
