People of Sandeshkhali were yet to recover from the nightmare of 27th May, 2014, when notorious criminal, racketeer, local TMC leader and Panchayat Upa-Pradhan, Shahjahan Sheikh and his gang, attacked local villagers at Rampur Gayen Para Halder Bheri area under Sandeshkhali P.S of North 24 Parganas District without any provocation and randomly fired on them resulting severe bullet injury to 26 Hindus. Exactly within 2 months from that attack, the Hindus at that area have, again, found themselves at the receiving end of attack of Shahjahan Sheikh.
It is reported that today morning , local Hindu youths – Amay Bhuia (Gora), Anup Mandal & Paresh Mandal were called at Sarberia school ground at around 11’o clock. Once they reached the place, Shahjahan Sheikh and his men pounced on them and started to beat them black & blue. Their main target was Amay Bhuia who has been building a group of local Hindu youth to resist the attack of Shahjahan Sheikh. Amay Bhuia, somehow, managed to escape from the place but Anup Mandal & Paresh Mandal failed to do so. Anup was beaten to death by miscreants on spot while Paresh Mandal was left with heavy injury and later taken to local Khulna hospital in a remote area where he was left totally unattended.
It is alleged by Hindus at Sandeshkhali that Mamata Banerjee and her police are blindly supporting Shahjahan Sheikh and covering up all his illegal acts due to his religious identity and affinity with the ruling party. Even after today’s incident, no action has been initiated against Shahjahan Sheikh. Quite surprisingly, mother of the deceased and father of Paresh have been taken under police possession. It is apprehended that has been done to compel her to file a report as per directives of police to save the Shahjahan Sheikh and inaction of police.
