Kolkata: Ruling Trinamool Congress on Wednesday accused the Left Front of launching a "wrong propaganda" against the state government over the suicide of a 16-year-old gang-rape victim.

"The CPI(M) is alienated from the people and they are desperately trying to launch a wrong propaganda against the government over this (gang-rape) issue. But the people will not accept this," TMC general secretary Mukul Roy said.

Describing the death of the girl yesterday at a city hospital as "sad," Roy said the administration did whatever was necessary to bring the culprits to book.
"The accused are in jail and a charge sheet has been filed against them," the party leader said.

Left Parties were involved in a tussle with Kolkata Police over the cremation of the body of the girl.
The victim, who was gang-raped twice in a day around two months ago in Madhyamgram, few kms away from Kolkata, had attempted suicide on December 23 and succumbed to her injuries yesterday.
