The miscreants stormed the sweet shop and looked for its owner Tapas Ghosh who is also secretary of the ‘Durga Chowmuhuni’ market but Tapas Ghosh , a leading activist of BJP close to a senior leader of the party had possibly scented trouble well in advance and had fled the shop.
But his unknowing younger brother Prantosh Ghosh who was in the shop was set upon by the miscreants who severely assaulting him and inflicting head injuries .
Unnerved local people who saw the incident managed to send Prantosh to GBP hospital but they failed to identify the attackers as all of them had face-covered helments on.
