"The police released him because a mob had circled the Jirania police station and threw stones for hours," CPI-M spokesperson Gautam Das told a press conference here.
Das said that CPI-M had long been "crying" that Congress was trying to use insurgents in the elections and they forged an alliance with such a force which is the over ground mask of NLFT insurgents.
Tripura CPI-M Secretary Bijan Dhar today wrote a letter to Chief Election Commissioner stating that it was unbelievable that without the knowledge of the brick kiln owner Sandip Roy Burman anybody could gather arms or extortion notice of NLFT in his kiln.
Dhar requested ECI to rearrest Sandip and conduct a proper inquiry for the interest of free Assembly election in Tripura on February 14.
Sandip was held by Assam Rifles from his brick field at Champaknagar, about 30 km from here yesterday and was released last night itself on bail because the charge brought against him by Assam Rifles was 'weak'.
However, Sandip Burman refuted the charge, saying that he was framed and alleged that it was a conspiracy hatched by the ruling CPI-M.
Sudip Roy Barman told reporters, "It is a conspiracy by the Tripura government to tarnish his image and that of his family."
