The injured victims were immediately rushed to Krishnaganj Hospital and Saktinagar District Hospital in Krishnagar. Currently, the conditions of two individuals remain critical, while the others are receiving medical attention.

According to eyewitnesses, the clash erupted after a crude bomb was thrown at the house of a BJP panchayat samity candidate in Nagada. This act instigated a violent confrontation between members of the two political parties.

MLA Mukutmoni Adhikari, a BJP representative, alleged that TMC workers initiated the hostilities by hurling bombs at their party (BJP) candidate’s residence before proceeding to attack the homes of BJP workers. Adhikari claimed that his own house was targeted, resulting in critical injuries to his parents and brother.

Additionally, he reported that seven other individuals sustained injuries during the attack and were admitted to the hospital in serious condition.

In contrast, a Trinamul Congress leader dismissed the allegations and countered that the BJP workers deliberately instigated the conflict by detonating a bomb at their own candidate’s house. The TMC members, who were in the vicinity after concluding a rally, hurried to the scene upon hearing the explosion. According to their version of events, the BJP workers then launched an assault, wielding sticks and weapons, injuring one TMC worker severely enough to require hospitalization at Saktinagar District Hospital.

Police said they have initiated an investigation into the incident, with three individuals already arrested in connection with the clash. They are working to ascertain the sequence of events and gather evidence to determine the facts surrounding the violent altercation.

The clash has left the locality on edge as residents and political supporters anxiously await further developments. Authorities are maintaining a heightened presence in the area to prevent any escalation of tensions.
