Four persons were injured in Tripura when hooligans attacked a blood donation camp at South Sonaimuri of Belonia subdivision, in South Tripura District on Sunday morning.

The blood donation camp was organised by Student Federation of India (SFI) and Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) ) to observe voluntary blood donors day and birth anniversary of Che Guevara.

“The camp was attacked by BJP goons at around 10 am today,” alleged former DYFI state secretary Tapas Datta.

“They vandalised the blood donation camp and attacked the SFI and DYFI members with rods and sticks,” he further added.

“The health officials were also stopped mid-way and they were not allowed to reach the camp,” Datta further said.

“The blood donation camp had to be cancelled due to this,” he added.

“Four persons were seriously injured and were admitted to Belonia hospital,” Datta further said.

He further alleged police of taking no action against the attackers.

Former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar condemned the incident and alleged that BJP was attacking its members as they are losing their base and are frustrated.
