In a shocking incident from Lakshmipur village in Chopra’s Dighalgaon area, West Bengal, a local Bahubali leader named Tajemul, known as ‘JCB,’ was caught on video brutally assaulting a married woman and a man. The assault took place during a so-called ‘Insaf Sabha,’ an arbitration meeting allegedly held to deliver swift justice in a manner reminiscent of Taliban-style kangaroo courts.



The disturbing video, shared by CPI(M) leader Mohammed Salim, shows Tajemul kicking and beating the victims with cane sticks as they lay helplessly on the ground. The woman is seen screaming and writhing in pain while a large crowd watches without intervening. In a particularly troubling detail, a police patrol vehicle was present nearby but no officers stepped in to stop the assault.

According to local sources, the incident stemmed from allegations of an extramarital affair between the victims. Tajemul, who is reportedly a close associate of Chopra MLA Hamidur Rahaman, has been known to conduct such ‘Insaf Sabha’ sessions regularly. The accused is said to have fined the victims in addition to the physical assault.

Despite the severity of the assault, neither victim was taken to the hospital. The woman, in particular, refrained from seeking medical attention at the government health center due to fear of further repercussions. The man who recorded the video has since gone into hiding, and there are reports that a case has been filed against him for capturing the incident.

Tajimul’s actions have sparked outrage, with BJP Social Media head Amit Malviya condemning the Trinamool Congress (TMC) government and calling for the National Commission for Women (NCW) to take action. Malviya criticized the lack of law and order in West Bengal under Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s rule, drawing parallels to other incidents of mass sexual exploitation and violence in the state.

When contacted by TV9 Bangla, Trinamool Congress district president Kanhaiya Lal promised to alert the police and ensure immediate action. However, as of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the assault.

This incident underscores the urgent need for effective law enforcement and protection of citizens’ rights in West Bengal. The prevalence of such extrajudicial activities highlights a significant breakdown in the rule of law and calls for immediate intervention to prevent further atrocities.
