The All India Trinamool Congress has brought to the notice of the police observer an alleged instance of molestation of a woman out for her morning walk on Sunday morning by Central Force personnel deployed for election duty in the Uluberia Parliamentary constituency.

In a letter dated May 19 AITC Election agent Md Jawahir Rahi said, “We would like to bring to the notice of the Commission a very unfortunate incident that took place in 178 Uluberia South AC this morning involving the Central Force personnel deployed for election duty. It is alleged that an instance of molestation occurred when a woman was out for her morning walk.
