Kolkata: A BJP supporter, who was allegedly tortured by police at her residence in Birbhum district last week, on Wednesday threatened to launch a protest outside the district SP office if accused persons were not arrested soon.
"I will wait for another couple of days and if the culprits are not arrested, I will sit on a demonstration outside the SP office," Haitunneshwa Bibi said today.
Actress Rupa Ganguly, who recently joined BJP, said her party would not let atrocities by the ruling party go on.
"Women are tortured and disrespected despite the state being helmed by a woman chief minister. It's quite shocking to see that those who are running the government are torturing our workers," she said.
Ganguly, who joined BJP along with actor Joy Banerjee, today visited the woman at her residence.
On January 18, Bibi, stated to be relative of a BJP activist wanted in connection with a bomb attack case, was tortured allegedly by police officials before she was forcibly taken to police station following a raid at her Ilambazar residence.
Sabur Seikh, the 22-year-old's husband, lodged an FIR with Panrui Police Station.
Sub-inspector Kartik Mohan Ghosh was suspended and a departmental probe was initiated against two constables for their alleged involvement in the incident.
