TMC Wing Student Leader Gets Jail Custody Till 2nd Feb


Update: TMC Wing Student Leader Gets Jail Custody Till 2nd Feb. Bail petition is dismissed.

Chinsura: The TMC wing student leader surrenders before the Sreerampore Court. A third-year college student and Trinamool Congress Chhatra Parishad (TMCP) member has accused the general secretary of a student union at a Hooghly college of molesting and physical abusing her.

In a complaint lodged at the Chandannagar Police Commissi-onerate on Wednesday, the woman has alleged that she faced abuse at the hands of Shahid Hasan Khan, also a TMCP member, on multiple occasions.

CCTV footage at the college dated December 4 shows the accused slapping the complainant — also a member of the student union — and kicking her inside the union room. It also showed Khan, who is the son the Rishra Municipality vice-chairman Zahid Hasan Khan, pushing the woman towards the door of the student union room.

“He used to beat me up regularly. Yesterday, he again physically abused me. I was also mentally harassed. He is a heartless person who was beating me like a dog. I feel scared now, as I have been threatened by him. He has threatened to kill me and said no one can do anything to him as he is the son of an influential person. I am in the final year and I can’t go to college due to his threats,” the woman told mediapersons on Thursday.

The incident sparked outrage after the CCTV footage was broadcast on television channels on Thursday. College authorities suspended Khan after reviewing the footage, while TMCP state president Jaya Dutta on Thursday said Khan has been removed from the post of general secretary of the students union.
