An eleven member delegation of Left parties led by former minister Manab Mukherjee Tuesday submitted a deputation to the commissioner of police, Surajeet Kar Puraklayastha demanding action against the miscreants who attacked the Left Front rally on Sunday near the Sinthi crossing.
Left leaders including former minister Manab Mukherjee and former MP Mohammed Selim led the rally. The march protesting against the attack on the rally, led by left front chairman Biman Bose, started from Subodh Mallick Square on Tuesday evening.
The rally which had a strength of around thousand people was stopped far away from the Kolkata Police headquarters at Lalbazar by the police. Sources said, a huge force was deployed for this task. After the rally was restricted, the Left supporters and workers sat on the road saying that they would not move from the road till they were allowed to submit the deputation. An eleven member team was later allowed to submit the deputation to the commissioner.
The blockade on the Ganesh Chandra Avenue in central Kolkata triggered a huge traffic snarl.
Meanwhile, three TMC workers were arrested in connection to the attack on Left Front's rally on Sunday, which left two persons sustaining severe injuries.
