Hours after West Bengal Assembly election results were out, four police personnel were injured and a police station was ransacked by a group of about 30 people, alleged to be Trinamool Congress (TMC) supporters, in North 24 Parganas district, following which 11 people were arrested.
"The group last night pelted stones at New Barrackpore police station in which properties were damaged. Bikes belonging to police personnel were also damaged and four
police officials injured in the attack," Barrackpore Commissioner of Police Nirag Kumar Singh told PTI.
The officer-in-charge of the police station, one ASI and two civic police personnel were among the injured who were released from a local hospital after treatment, the CP said.
Eleven people, including TMC block president Sukhen Majumder and local Councillor Manoj Sarkar, were arrested in connection with the attack in the northern suburbs, he said.
"The 11 persons have been charged under different sections and also for causing damage to articles and vehicles at the police station. All have been forwarded to court," Singh said.
