Bengal police arrest 16 people over attack on BJP's Dilip Ghosh

However, TMC has denied the charge.

In an action on a complaint of BJP's West Bengal president Dilip Ghosh that he was attacked by Trinamool Congress activists in Cooch Behar district of North Bengal, the Election Commission (EC) has asked the local administration to submit a report on the matter within 24 hours.

Ghosh on April 7 alleged that he suffered injuries after Trinamool Congress activists attacked his car with bombs and bricks. According to Ghosh, around 100 attacked his convoy.

However, the ruling party has denied the charge. Acting on the complaint of Ghosh, Bengal's ADG (Law and Order) has also asked Cooch Behar’s Superintendent of Police and District Magistrate to submit a report on the incident, said the report.

According to Ghosh, his car's window glasses including the one on his side were smashed in the attack which took place at Sitalkuchi after a public meeting of his party. After breaking the glass, a brick hit him and he received injuries in the left hand, the BJP leader said.

Ghosh further claimed that the police did not act to prevent the attack on him and BJP supporters.
