Malda: Women Development Minister Sabitri Mitra has criticised the police for not arresting an accused in the rape of a 24-year-old woman in Malda district on August 2. "I had asked Malda superintendent of police Jayanta Kumar Pal to personally visit the spot and arrest the accused. He has not done so, nor the police from the nearby Ratua police station took any step," she said recently. The victim, a resident of Baldiapukur village, was allegedly raped at knife-point on August 2 when she was alone in her hut, sources said. The woman and her husband met Mitra after they were not allowed to lodge an FIR at Ratua police station following the incident.
From now, only one INTTUC union in factory: Partha
Kolkata: To curb infighting in the Trinamool Congress' trade union wing at a time when the West Bengal government is wooing investors, party chief Mamata Banerjee has instructed that there will be only one union in a factory or business establishment in the state. "There will be only one union (in an industrial unit or business establishment) affiliated to the INTTUC, the trade union body of TMC," Industry Minister Partha Chatterjee said on Sunday. The move came following reports of factionalism in the INTTUC. The rift between state INTTUC president Dola Sen and another INTTUC leader Shovondeb Chattapadhyya, who is also the chief whip of the TMC, came into the open recently over the celebration of May Day in the city.
