Bengal Police arrest another TMC leader in Sandeshkhali, lodge FIR against Shajahan

KOLKATA: The West Bengal Police arrested TMC leader Ajit Maiti from the trouble-torn Sandeshkhali in North 24 Parganas district on the charges of land grabbing from villagers, an officer said on Monday.

Maiti, considered a close aide of absconding TMC strongman Shahjahan Sheikh, was detained on Sunday evening from the residence of a civic volunteer where he had locked himself for over four hours after being chased by villagers, he said.

“We have arrested him after getting complaints from villagers regarding land grabbing. We will produce him in the court later in the day,” the police officer told PTI.
