tmc: Bengal killings: TMC Rampurhat-1 block president Anarul Hossain arrested

Trinamool Congress’s Rampurhat-1 block president Anarul Hussain was arrested on Thursday in connection with the killings at Bogtui village in West Bengal’s Birbhum district. He was arrested from Tarapith in the district within hours of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee directing the police to ignore locals’ apprehensions of possible unrest in the area, a senior official said.

Searches were conducted in various parts of the district including Hussain’s residence, after which he was nabbed from Tarapith. He said Hussain was picked up from near a hotel after police traced the location of his mobile phone tower.

He said the local TMC leader would be questioned about the incident in which eight people were burnt alive on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Rampurhat police station in-charge Tridib Pramanik has been suspended on charges of negligence.
