Cong delegation to DM turns violent in Murshidabad

A Congress delegation to the Murshidabad district magistrate on Thursday turned violent after the latter refused to meet them in his office here.

District magistrate Rajiv Kumar refused to accept a memorandum from Congress leaders and instead asked the ADM to receive it, PCC president Pradip Bhattacharjee said.

Congress workers who were sitting in a demonstration in front of the district magistrate's office threw brickbats at the office building and disarrayed some flower pots.

At this, Congress leader and Union Minister Adhir Chowdhury intervened and gave a 30-minute ultimatum to the magistrate to receive the memorandum, threatening a bigger agitation.

The district magistrate finally received the memorandum.

The sit-in was organised to protest against the death of a Congress worker in a hospital under the Bhabagangola police station area on January 7 after he was allegedly beaten up inside police lock-up.
