Kolkata, May 1 (IANS) A seven-year-old girl was beaten up allegedly by miscreants allied to West Bengal’s ruling Trinamool Congress after her grandfather – a CPI-M supporter – voted in the fifth phase of assembly polls in the southern outskirts Aof the city.

The victim’s family alleged that the miscreants attacked the house in the Haridevpur area of the Behala East constituency on Saturday night.

“They were angry as my father-in-law cast his vote in the elections earlier in the day. The attackers are Trinamool activists,” said the child’s mother Basanti Bor.

The child said she was reading a book when she heard people shouting outside.

“They were calling for my dadu (grandfather). Then they entered by pushing the gate, which struck me. Blood came out. Then they hit the same area with a baton. More blood came out,” said the girl.

Later, people were arrested, said a police officer.

However, they later got bail from the police station itself.
