Midnapore: Police have arrested a Chatra Parishad leader named Paltu Ojha in connection with the murder of the student in Sabang Sajanikanta College. Five students were interrogated throughout the night and Ojha was arrested in the morning.
Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had earlier stated that the student was killed due to a faction fight within the Chatra Parishad and no TMC members were involved in the attack. Even the same tune was heard from the mouth of West Midnapore SP Bharati Ghosh. Another student named Saurav Mahapatra has been detained. Police have said that he will be giving secret statement in the case.
Congress leader and the MLA of the constituency, Dr. Manas Bhuiyan alleged, with the arrest of the CP leader, the police have sealed the statement of the Chief Minister and SP Bharati Ghosh who spoke in tunes of the Chief Minister. He condemned the arrest of Ojha saying that Police is misleading the CM.
