Kolkata: A woman in West Bengal attempted suicide after she was molested and her family members were beaten up by a group of people for her refusal to join the Trinamool Congress, police said Wednesday.

"We have received a complaint by Toton Das, who has alleged that his mother was molested by a group of people who also assaulted his other family members for refusal to join the Trinamool Congress. The woman later attempted suicide by consuming poison," said the duty officer of Marishda police station in East Midnapore district.

The incident took place April 15 and the police complaint was given Tuesday. At least 21 people were named in the complaint by Das, a resident of Kaniadighi near Contai, about 150 km from Kolkata.

Das alleged police were dragging their feet on the case.

"It has been more than 24 hours since I made the complaint but there has been no action. Those who assaulted my family are roaming freely while my father had to flee the village," said Das.

"A group of people asked me to gather all the women of the village for a Trinamool Congress meeting. When I refused, they assaulted me and my family and tore away my clothes," said Das' mother, adding that the goons demanded Rs.50,000 from her because she was a Communist Party of India-Marxist supporter.

The woman undergoing treatment in Contai sub-divisional hospital said her family had been targeted because a few days back it had demolished a hooch den.

"My sons and husband along with others had earlier destroyed a hooch den. After this, the goons started targeting us and would often demand money," said the woman.
