এরাজ্যের চিটফান্ডের দ্বারা প্রতারিত হওয়া মানুষজন একজোট হয়ে তৈরি করেছেন চিটফান্ড সাফারার্স অ্যাসোসিয়েশন। শ্যামল সেন কমিশনের চেক বাউন্সের প্রতিবাদে আজ সকাল থেকে রাজ্যজুড়ে রেল অবরোধের ডাক দেয় তারা। সকাল থেকে হাওড়া ও শিয়ালদহ শাখায় চলছে অবরোধ। আটক বেশ কিছু দূরপাল্লার ও লোকাল ট্রেন। গড়িয়া স্টেশনে অবরোধকারীদের উপর হামলা চালাল দুষ্কৃতীরা। অভিযোগ, পুলিস এই ঘটনায় স্রেফ দর্শকের ভূমিকা গ্রহণ করে। তৃণমূল কাউন্সিলরের নেতৃত্বেই `হামলা` হয়েছে বলে অভিযোগ। তৃণমূল কর্মীরাই অবরোধ তুলে দেন। হামলা করা হয় সংবাদ মাধ্যমেত প্রতিনিধিদের উপরও।
সারদা কেলেঙ্কারিতে ক্ষতিগ্রস্তদের টাকা ফেরত দিতে গঠিত হয়েছিল শ্যামল সেন কমিশন। সেই কমিশন ফলাও করে বিজ্ঞাপন দিয়ে এজেন্ট এবং আমানতকারীদের থেকে তথ্য জানতে চেয়েছিল। উদ্দেশ্য ছিল ক্ষতিগ্রস্তদের টাকা ফেরত দেওয়া। সেইমত বিভিন্ন জেলায় কমিশনের অফিসে নথি জমা দেন সারদার এজেন্ট ও আমানতকারীরা। আশা ছিল
টাকা ফেরত মিলবে। সব নথি খতিয়ে দেখার পর কমিশনের তরফে শুরু হয় চেক বিলি। কিন্তু সরকারি চেকও বাউন্স করায় বিপাকে এজেন্ট ও আমানতকারীরা। শুধু সারদা নয়য়।

KOLKATA: A group of miscreants, allegedly owing allegiance to the Trinamool Congress, took it upon themselves to rein in the victims of chit fund who were agitating near the Garia railway station on Friday. Some protesters were injured after being allegedly attacked by the goons. A complaint has been lodged with the Sonarpur police station.
Since Friday morning, people from places like Sonarpur, Baruipur, Subhashgram and Mallickpur started pouring in. By 7am, a crowd of around 250, who had lost money in the Saradha row and in several other such schemes, marched on the railway tracks between Garia and Narendrapur stations. As a part of the statewide 'rail roko' agitation by chit fund victims, the protesters had squatted on the railway tracks.

The outnumbered railway police, who went to intervene, retreated as the agitators 'convinced' that theirs was a peaceful protest and that they would leave the place in a few minutes.
Around 8am, a group of about 50 men, some reportedly carrying Trinamool Congress flags, rushed to the spot. They ordered the protesters to vacate the railway tracks within 15 minutes. The agitators did not budge. A heated exchange ensued which was soon followed by a tussle between the two groups.
"The protesters were thrashed and kicked. The goons also pelted stones at them and the assault went on for almost half an hour, leaving three persons badly injured," said witnesses.
"If the physical assault was not enough, the assailants showered expletives on us. They forgot that there were several Trinamool supporters among the protesters," said Sharamma Dey, who escaped with minor injury.
After the attack, the goons allegedly dragged away two protesters - Bijoy Sapui and Kamal Hossain. While an injured Sapui was later found from near a pond, about half kilometres from the spot where the agitation was on, Kalam Hossain was missing till reports came in last.
Asim Chatterjee, convener of Chit Fund Sufferers' Unity Forum, under the banner of which the agitation took place, termed the attack pre-planned and unprovoked. "The attack was led by Bibhash Mukherjee, councillor of ward number 2 of Sonarpur Rajpur municipality, and Subrata Mondal, secretary of Garia town Trinamool Congress. But, we won't bow before such threats and assault. We will take this protest to a bigger level," said Chatterjee.
Repeated calls to Bibhash Mukherjee for a reaction went unanswered. Railway police confirmed the incident. "We have heard about the incident. Train services were disrupted for about twenty minutes in the sector due to the protest," said Sealdah SRP Utpal Naskar.
"This is no more a Saradha scam, but a Trinamool Congress chit fund scam. The party has deeper relation with the Saradha operators," said CPM leader Salil Chakraborty.

been dishonored.

also said to have blocked rail

schemes, went bust in April last
year. Group Chairman Sudipta

police later that month.
