The ordeal did not end there and when the victim’s sister protested, she too was thrown to the ground and pulled by the arms and abused by the men led by Amal Sarkar.
The woman who was dragged by the Local TMC leader is a primary school teacher. She has now registered a police complaint against five people who allegedly assaulted her after they forcefully tried to acquire her land in West Bengal's South Dinajpur district.
