PTC Web Desk: The West Bengal opposition has launched a scathing attack on the Mamata Banerjee-led Trinamool Congress (TMC) government after a chilling video of a man beating up two people including a woman went viral on social media.

According to the opposition parties CPM and BJP, the video is of Chopra, Uttar Dinajpur district, north Bengal. The incident reportedly occurred over the weekend. 


In the video, a man is seen repeatedly hitting a woman with sticks while a small crowd remains quiet. She screams in pain, but the attack continues. He then turns to a man and begins hitting him. Instead of trying to stop the assault, most of the crowd appears to be assisting the attacker. At one point, the man grabs the woman's hair and kicks her.

According to opposition leaders, the assailant is local strongman Tajemul, who has ties to TMC and is known for giving "instant justice" in local disputes. It is unclear why the man and woman in the viral video were being assaulted. Local police have stated that they have filed a case and are searching for the accused.

The main opposition BJP has described this as the "ugly face of Mamata Banerjee's regulate in West Bengal".

"The guy in the video, who is beating up a woman mercilessly, is Tajemul... He is famous for giving quick justice through his 'insaf' sabha and is a close associate of Chopra MLA Hamidur Rahaman," BJP's Amit Malviya said.

 "India must wake up to the reality of Sharia Courts in TMC-run West Bengal. There is a #Sandeshkhali in every village and Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee is a curse for women. There is no semblance of law and order in Bengal. Will Mamata Banerjee act against this monster or defend him like she stood up for Sheikh Shahjahan?" he added.

The Trinamool Congress has stated that the accused "will not be spared" regardless of his political affiliations.

Trinamool spokesperson Riju Dutta, responding to allegations, said, "What the BJP is saying is immaterial because they are politically bankrupt, they will say whatever they want to say. It's a heinous crime. The Trinamool Congress doesn't want to know who this guy is or what his political affiliations are. Whoever this guy is, the police are looking for him. The strictest arm of the law will be meted out to him. He will not be spared. He will be made an example as soon as he gets caught."
