Former Tripura minister and rebel BJP legislator Sudip Roy Barman on Friday demanded to implicate IPC Section 302 (murder) against the miscreants who attacked Trinamool Congress leader Mujibur Islam Majumdar in August last year.
Majumdar, who was undergoing treatment at the SSKM hospital in Kolkata, passed away on Wednesday.
Barman demanded that Section 302 of the IPC must be implicated against the attackers as Majumdar was murdered.
Barman along with another dissident BJP MLA, Ashis Kumar Saha visited the family members of Majumdar at Badarghat near Agartala.
“After severely attacking Majumdar on August 28 last year, the attackers pinned him down and kicked on his chest. I knew him (Majumdar) since my childhood,” said Barman.
He said that Majumdar suffered multiple fractures in his hands and legs during the attack.
The Trinamool Congress had alleged in a statement that 56-year-old Majumdar was brutally attacked by BJP workers in western Tripura when he had gone to participate in the Trinamool Chhatra Parishad’s foundation day event on August 28 last year.
Subsequently, Majumdar, the younger brother of a BJP state committee member, was shifted to the SSKM hospital in Kolkata where he was undergoing treatment. He passed away on Wednesday morning, the statement had said.
“We demand justice for Majumdar,” the statement added.
Majumdar, a former President of the Tripura unit of NSUI, had joined the Trinamool last year along with several other Congress leaders.
