Howrah (WB), July 10

A businessman in West Bengal’s Howrah district was allegedly assaulted and his house vandalised after a kangaroo court session was convened by a local panchayat pradhan and TMC leader to resolve his marital dispute.

Two persons were arrested for their alleged involvement in the incident that occurred on Tuesday, the police said.

The businessman, identified as Sahabuddin Sepai, had agreed to participate in the kangaroo court session to resolve the dispute. During the session, Kandua gram panchayat pradhan and local TMC leader Khalil Ahmed confronted Sepai and abruptly left with his associates after a heated argument.

Soon after they left, a mob allegedly led by Ahmed beat up the man and vandalised his house, they said. “Two persons have been arrested. Efforts are on to trace other accused named in an FIR,” the officer said. Ahmed claimed that he had left the session before violence erupted.
