A man, who was travelling in a train, has been beheaded by a group of assailants who made an easy escape as people in the train did not try to stop them neither before nor after the murder.
The deceased has been identified as Khokon Ghosh, a resident of Kolguria village in Murshidabad. At least 7-8 people attacked 37-year-old Khokhon. According to sources, the killers might have cut off his head over some business related disputes.
Railway police stopped the train and returned back to the station where the assailants disembarked as the train could neither proceed with a body on board nor left stranded in between two signals.
The incident may bring more criticism for Mamata Banerjee and her government. The state has been witnessing the increasing numbers of crime cases. Everyday people in the state begin their day with the news of murder, rape, assault, robbery and many other.
A 38-year-old woman from the Bankra area, who works as a cook, was raped recently. She was going to her duty around 5 am when a man caught hold of her and dragged her behind a bush and allegedly raped her. The woman, who was also beaten up while resisting the attack, tried to draw attention of the passers-by and even pointed at the fleeing culprit. But none came to her rescue.
On the same day down south, a 19-year-old girl was pushed off from a moving train after she resisted four men who allegedly molested her.
On Saturday night, a man was nabbed for molesting the daughter-in-law of a former minister at GD Block in Salt Lake.
Four cases of snatching have been reported in the Salt Lake area in the last one week. About 150 green police volunteers have been deployed in the township. Residents are, however, spending days under fear. The incidents clearly show that people in the state have no security under Mamata Banerjee's government.
