Baharampore(WB): Activists of Trinamool Congress Chatra Parishad (TMCP), student wing of Trinamool Congress, allegedly locked up the acting principal of a college in Murshidabad district of West Bengal in her office, police said today.
The TMCP activists gheraoed the acting principal of Salar College Kakoli Bhaumick and locked her up in her room for more than four hours yesterday, they said.
