POLICE OFFICER'S HEAD FRACTURED BY MISCREANTS
Yesterday 24 March serious incident happened in the village Sonakania Dorjipara under Habra Police Station in North 24 Parganas district in West Bengal. 2nd officer of Habra PS Mr. Prafulla Kumar Shaw has been seriously injured by brick batting of miscreants led by one Rafikul Mondal alias Bhola, Mafidul Mondal and Ismail. Another seriously injured person is Sri Gopesh Ghosh, President of ‘Naam Yajno Samity’. He is now under treatment in Barasat Sadar Hospital.
Yesterday ‘Naam-Sankirtan’ was going on in the village. At about 11.30 am, just beside the Sankirtan place, one Muslim vendor started selling Beef which he was carrying in a bucket on his cycle. The devotees took notice of it and they informed the matter to the committee of the programme. Then the President, Sri Gopesh Ghosh went to the Beef-vendor and requested him to stop this act and leave the venue with beef. But the vendor declined and the Muslims started argument with Sri Gopesh Ghosh and other committee members. The argument quickly converted into confrontation. In that clash, the miscreants attacked Sri Gopesh Ghosh. In this attack, Sri Ghosh’s head has been fractured and he got serious injury on his back. Some other Hindus including Raju Ghosh, Tanmay Sur were also injured. Police was duly informed. Police force led by 2nd Officer of Habra PS came to the spot and tried to resist the miscreants. In result the police force came under severe attack by the miscreants. Police car was attacked. The 2nd Officer Mr. Prafulla Kumar Shaw’s head was fractured. Some other police personnel too got injury.
Yesterday was last day of 4-day dharmik anusthan. As Prasad, about 1000 people’s meals were prepared. The program was disturbed. It could not be concluded as per schedule, and all food were spoiled.
Habra Police registered a case against 16 miscreants, but not arrested anyone of them.
Today, the influential TMC leader of district and state cabinet minister Sri Jyotipriya Mallick visited the area. Just after that visit, that miscreant Rafikul Monadal again started threatening the local Hindus and terrorising them. He was abusing the Hindu women with filthy language when those women went to the spot to collect the utensils used yesterday to cook the meals. Hindus are panicked. This evening a delegation of 15 Hindus led by Committee member Sri Dilip Biswas went to Habra Police station to lodge complain against this threatening by Rafikul and other miscreants. But police declined to lodge any complaint. The Inspector in Charge Mr. Mainak Banerjee verbally assured the aggrieved Hindus and told them to report to him if any further attack happens.
