first_imgTripura BJP president Biplab Deb and thousands of party supporters courted arrest on Saturday while demanding for a CBI probe into the murder of a tribal leader in Dhalai district. Chan Mohan Tripura, an elected member of the Village Committee, a substitute of Gram Panchayat in tribal autonomous district council areas, was mowed down near his home in Ganddachara sub-division early last month.A few BJP supporters were injured in the scuffle with security forces in some places. The law disobedience agitation was organised in 62 places across Tripura’s eight districts.“Over 50,000 people courted arrest. We are overwhelmed by the support of people,” Mr. Deb said.He refused to accept the police report into the death of Chan Mohan, claiming the latter was killed by an unstable man. The police have maintained to have solved the case by arresting the accused.“We don’t trust the police working under the Left government. The murder was a fallout of a political conspiracy hatched by the CPI(M)”, Mr. Deb claimed.The ruling CPI(M) party condemned the stir and blamed the BJP for creating tension in the State.last_img
