KRISHNAGAR, 15 FEB: Leaders and members of Student Federation of India (SFI) and Democratic Youth Federation of India (DYFI) staged a protest rally and put up a road block for 10 minutes at Krishnagar Post Office More this evening to protest against the police atrocities on their colleagues during a protest march at Nabanna four days ago which led to the death of one DYFI activist Maidul Islam Middhya.

The protesters also burnt tyres on the road demanding immediate punishment of the accused police persons who illegally resorted to a lathicharge on the protesters.

Maidul Islam Middhya, a resident of Kotulpur in Bankura district, was critically injured in “Nabanna Obhijan” on 11 February. SFI and DYFI leadership alleged that he was severely beaten by police. His condition deteriorated on Sunday and he succumbed to his injuries on Monday.

While speaking at the protest rally, Sumit Chaki, DYFI leader in Nadia said, “He was murdered on the chief minister’s orders. We want justice and immediate resignation from her post.”

Reacting to the death, minister Subrata Mukherjee said, “Any death is unfortunate. But I am aware of the CPIM’s game plan as I have been fighting them for the past few decades. They wanted this to happen. Police were restrained on that day. But if someone wants to commit suicide, no one can help them.”

Meanwhile, the Opposition mounted attack on the Mamata Banerjee administration, saying that the government was trying to throttle all protests.

“This is a murder by the state government. The way police attacked the students can only be compared with the Jallianwala Bagh incident. More than 500 students were injured when police brutally attacked them,” CPIM leader Sujan Chakraborty said.
