Birbhum (West Bengal), Apr 20 : At least seven Trinamool Congress workers were injured and three went missing after a clash with Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) cadres at Thupsara Village in Birbhum District on Sunday.
Trinamool workers have alleged that the CPI-M had started playing tricks of atrocities in order to stop opposition candidates from contesting the May 18 panchayat polls.
According to sources, the CPI-M cadres have tried to stop Trinamool workers from doing door-to-door campaign.
Earlier on Saturday, at least eight supporters of the Bhoomi Uchched Pratirodh Committee were injured in a clash that erupted with CPI-M cadres.
On Friday, Trinamool Congress activists surrounded the Nandigram police station to protest the arrest of three party activists for their alleged involvement in the killing of a CPI-M Panchayat Samiti member last year.
The Trinamool Congress had alleged on Thursday that its three candidates for panchayat elections were missing from Khejuri.
