Kolkata: The house of a senior BJP leader in West Bengal was bombed allegedly by supporters of the ruling Trinamool Congress late Tuesday night, hours after the attack on the party’s state headquarters in Kolkata after the arrest of TMC MP Sudip Bandopadhyay in connection with the Rose Valley chit fund scam, reports said.

BJP leader Krishna Bhattacharya’s house in  Uttarpara in Hooghly district was bombed by “Three men with their faces covered.”

Bhattacharya alleged that the miscreants entered the house, “smashed windowpanes, damaged furniture, abused and assaulted me.”

She has sustained injuries and is undergoing treatment at a hospital.

Condemning the attack, senior BJP leader Sidharth Nath Singh said, “If Mamata Banerjee wants to say it’s going to be ‘Trinamool-bandi’, let me assure her that BJP is determined and we will remove their ‘bhrashtachar-bandi’ and ‘gunda-bandi’ from Bengal.”

Last week, the Central Bureau of Investigation arrested TMC MP Tapas Pal, an actor-turned-politician, for his alleged involvement in a ponzi scheme of the now defunct Saradha company in which lakhs of small investors were allegedly cheated.

In another case of similar nature, Bandopadhyay, a very senior TMC leader and a long time close aide of Mamata Banerjee, was arrested by CBI following hours of grilling.

Banerjee alleged that the arrests are being made as part of Narendra Modi’s “politics of vendetta” against her anti-notes ban movement.

The BJP headquarter in Kolkata was on Tuesday attacked by the angry Trinamool Congress supporters over the CBI arrest of Sudip Bandopadhyay. At least 20 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel, who are generally used for VVIP’s security, have been deployed in and around the BJP headquarters in Kolkata.
