Clashes between the CPI-M and the Trinamool Congress in West Bengal’s Burdwan district on Friday left a 37-year-old Trinamool worker dead and two injured. Though the police claimed that the clash took place between the two factions of the Trinamool, leaders of the opposition party said their men were attacked by the CPI-M supporters.
Katwa sub-divisional police officer Jyotirmay Roy said the clashes took place between two groups of the Trinamool Congress’ Ketugram block fighting over the occupancy of a newly built party office.
“One person was killed and two sustained injuries in this incident,” Roy said.
The CPI-M’s Burdwan district secretary, Amal Halder, said, “The incident took place following the infighting of the Trinamool Congress.”
