West Bengal Trinamool Youth Congress President Saayoni Ghosh was granted bail on Monday. She was arrested on the charge of an attempt to murder from Tripura’s Agartala on Sunday after she allegedly disrupted a meeting of state Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb by shouting “Khela hobe” (We will play) on Saturday night.
She was granted bail by the Chief Judicial Magistrate court in West Tripura.
A police official, who did not want to be named, said a BJP worker lodged a complaint that when a street corner gathering was being addressed by Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Saturday night, Ghosh reached there and shouted “Khela Hobey” (the game will happen) and claimed that there were not even 50 people in the gathering.
“Khela hobey” is a slogan used by the TMC during the assembly election in West Bengal held in March-April this year. TMC leaders alleged that their workers were also roughed up by BJP supporters outside the East Agartala Women’s police station, a charge denied by the saffron party.
