Trinamool Councillor Shot at Near Her Home in West Bengal’s Barrackpore, Probe Underway


A Trinamool Congress (TMC) councillor was shot at near her residence in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district on Saturday, police said.

Champa Das, a councillor of the North Barrackpore Municipality, was shot in the leg, they said. “She has been taken to a hospital. Further investigation is on,” a senior police officer said.

The incident happened in the Ichapore area in the evening and triggered a panic, the police said.

Das was first taken to a private hospital in Barrackpore and later shifted to Kolkata for better treatment.

Das had won the election as an Independent but joined the Trinamool Congress in 2019.

The Trinamool Congress alleged that the opposition was behind the incident.

“She is very popular in her area. Those behind the incident must be arrested. For the last one year, the opposition has been trying to create a reign of terror in the area,” TMC district president and senior minister Jyotipriyo Mullick said.
