TMC suspends Shahjahan Sheikh for 6 years

Kolkata, Feb 29 (UNI) West Bengal ruling Trinamool Congress on Thursday suspended its leader Shahjahan Sheikh from the party for six years after he was arrested by police in connection with alleged attacks on Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials at Sandeshkhali in North 24 Parganas.
Shahjahan was arrested on Wednesday night from Bamonkhola village at Minakhan, in 24 Parganas, exactly 56 days after he allegedly orchestrated attacks on the ED officials and CRPF jawans on January 5 when the central agencies went to his Sarberia home to probe an alleged ration distribution scam.
On January 6 the ED lodged a criminal case of assault against Shahjahan with the Nazat police station and since then the Sandeshkhali strongman has not been seen in public.
