growing violence and crime against women and demanding that the state government’s
steps to stop violence against women in Tripura. Later, police had registered a
case against them for violation of pandemic norms.

police assault. But, with intension to

AIDWA leaders under different sections including, 353, 332, 323, 270 and
section 34 of IPC, said advocate Debbarma.
The court on Monday after the hearing has granted bail to
all four leaders on payment of a bail bond of Rs 30,000 each. Debbarma said that the cases against CPI(M)
leaders were an attempt by the
government to divert the attention of people from their failure.

undemocratic step by the government to suppress the voices of opposition,
Debbarma said AIDWA workers staged the protest rally in support of the people,
who were in distress during the pandemic hours and crime against women are in
peak after formation of BJP-IPFT government and such fake cases are being filed
to keep the opposition away from the democratic movement in the state. (Tripurainfo)
