CPI(M) has nothing to do with this incident – ​​Sujan Chakraborty

CPI(M) Central Committee member Sujan Chakraborty said, “This incident is reminiscent of the Bogatui massacre. “At least 10 people were killed in arson and violence following the murder of local Trinamool leader Bhadu Shaikh in Bogtui in Birbhum district in March 2022.” Sujan Chakraborty said that every death is unfortunate. The police should conduct a proper investigation to catch the killers and expose the conspiracy. He said that the murder of Saifuddin Laskar is the result of internal discord within the Trinamool Congress. There is no point in blaming CPI(M).
