BJP District President, Sunip Das, termed the attack unfortunate and said, "TMC supporters have been attacking BJP party workers here and vandalising our offices. Some people had left the place due to this reason. They had returned before the Durga puja to spend time with their families but suddenly tonight a few of TMC members turned up and attacked his home with pistols."
He was first taken to the Baruipur hospital by the locals, which after primary treatment referred him to the Kolkata National Medical College hospital for further treatment.
TMC leader Shyamsundar Chakraborty, however, denied the charge and said his party was not involved in the attack.
Further details are awaited.
