CPI(ML) strongly condemns the barbaric attack by BJP-Sangh goons on CPIM's program in Tripura's Charilam Bazar on Wednesday, in which Com. Shahid Mia was killed and several other comrades were grievously injured. The political meeting of CPIML was being organised in front of the party office in the market with the valid permission of the police. During the meeting, BJP-sponsored goons gathered illegally in front of the police and pelted bricks, hurled bombs at the CPIM cadres.

The video of incident clearly shows the complicity of the state police during the attack. The police personnel were seen remaining as a mute spectator, standing near the right wing goons as they engaged in violence. We demand immediate arrest and prosecution of the goons and strict action as per law.
