The incident started last Saturday afternoon. Allegedly, some women from the Gopalnagar police station area suddenly entered the house of kabaddi player Barbie Sen and started rioting. Her mother Tara Sen was attacked by the attackers. She was severely beaten. Barbie claims that she too came out when she heard her mother screaming. Then she saw that several women are beating her mother. Barbie tried to save her mother from the attackers. Allegedly, she was also beaten at that time.
After that, the group of women grabbed the mother-daughter's hair and tried to pull her out of the house. Barbie's clothes were allegedly torn off in an attempt to save herself and her mother. The attackers did not stop. Allegedly, Barbie and her mother had their hair cut. After that, the video of the incident was spread on the internet. The attackers also threatened to kill Barbie and her mother with acid.
According to police sources, the trouble started with the allegation that Tara Sen, a resident of Babupara in Bongaon, had an extramarital affair with Tapas Malik of Gopalnagar. Locals claim that there has been a minor dispute between the two families over the issue for a long time. It culminated on Saturday.
A group of women led by Tapas's wife Sravanti attacked the Barbies. As soon as the video of the incident was spread on the net, the local administration became restless. Representatives of Bongaon municipality stood by the family of the kabaddi player.
Barbie's family lodged a written complaint with the Bangaon police station late on Sunday night. Police have started an investigation into the incident. However, police have not yet made any arrests in the incident. Bangaon police district SP Tarun Haldar said, "Investigation into the incident has started."
Former councilor of Bangaon municipality Mausumi Chakraborty has condemned the incident. He said, “I came to know through the net that the kabaddi player of Babupara and his mother have been beaten and their hair was chopped off. I know Barbie. This is a very shameful incident.
It is unthinkable to stand in 2021. The girls of the house are getting their hair cut. I strongly condemn it. I will also ask the administration to take strict action against it. ”
Local BJP leader Devdas Mandal said, “They are threatening to change their face by throwing acid. We are living in a society. There is no such thing as security in Bengal, there is no such thing as democracy and governance. Condemn. "
