Bengal kid beaten up for tearing Trinamool posters

Kolkata, April 27 (IANS) Enraged over his act of tearing posters of a Trinamool Congress candidate, a 10 year-old-boy was beaten up in West Bengal’s South 24-Parganas district.

The assault on the boy took place in Canning on Tuesday and comes only days after a girl barely three and a half years in age was beaten up along with her family in North 24-Parganas’ Halisahar on Sunday night.

“The boy had apparently torn some posters, and because of that he was beaten up by some men. Six people were named in the complaint but no arrests have been made so far,” police circle inspector Sisir Kumar Mitra said.

Talking about his ordeal, the boy said: “I tore the posters to make a kite for myself. But some men beat me up, gagged my mouth, tied up my legs and threw me away.”

While the family has alleged the involvement of Trinamool Congress ativists as the torn posters were of Saokat Molla, the party’s candidate from Canning East. The ruling party denied the charges.
