Mr Roy said ECI has declared free and fair poll and brought companies of Central Forces to maintain law and order.

In the contrary, these Central  Forces comprising of CRPF are threatening women voters, candidates in all three phases and asking them to vote for BJP.

Both Mamata Banerjee during her election meeting at Tollygunge and Jadavpur and Mr Roy alleged that CRPF also manhandled women reporters who went to cover elections.

In the letter written to the CEO, the TMC says that the CRPF jawan “brutally and viciously sexually assaulted a minor girl, a resident of Ramnagar GP.” TMC MP Derek O’Brien wrote that the crime took place beside the Ramnagar Primary School.

TMC said it has lodged an official complaint with the Tarakeshwar Police Station, and an FIR has been registered.

“The sexual attack has the effect of terrorizing the electorate of the constituency and transcends all notions of a free and fair election,” the letter said.

TMC has also alleged that the CRPF has been siding with the Bharatiya Janata Party and has been inactive when it comes to complaints against BJP members engaging in voter suppression.

Mr Roy also alleged that some BJP  candidates are distributing coupons of value of Rs 1,000 to voters alluring them to vote for BJP or attend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally. He said Trinamul lodged a complaint to ECI with the coupon which contained PM’s photo and the above mentioned amount.
