Posted on Nov 12, 02:38PM | IBNS

Ashish Dey, known to be a member of West Bengal's ruling Trinamool Congress, was arrested on Monday after he was caught on camera brandishing a gun and threatening the staff of a private nursing home.

Police have slapped five non-bailable charges against him.

The incident took place on Friday in West Bengal's Birbhum district. Dey was apparently unhappy with a particular doctor joining the nursing home, reports said.

However, Trinamool has disassociated himself from the incident saying Dey is not with the party anymore.

"Ashish Dey is no more with our party. He was suspended a couple of years back," said Trinamool MP Shatabdi Roy.
