Agar­tala: A CPI( M) coun­cil­lor of the Agar­tala Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion has gone missing Mon­day morn­ing and was found in­jured and un­con­scious af­ter around 12 hours, the po­lice said. The 55- yearold coun­cil­lor was not seen from around 7 am at his home in Joy­na­gar lo­cal­ity here and was re­cov­ered near Bat­tala cre­ma­to­rium, about a kilo­me­tre from his house, at 6.45 pm. Lo­cal peo­ple iden­ti­fied him and brought him to his home af­ter iden­ti­fy­ing him, his wife Banasri Chakraborty said. She claimed that her hus­band was found in a ‘ badly in­jured’ con­di­tion, though of­fi­cer- in- charge of West Agar­tala po­lice sta­tion, Subrata Chakraborty, said the coun­cil­lor’s in­juries were mi­nor in na­ture. The CPI( M) leader was taken to hos­pi­tal for first aid and was brought back home. His fam­ily had filed a missing di­ary with the po­lice Mon­day morn­ing. It is yet to be clear how the in­ci­dent took place. CPI( M) spokesper­son Goutam Das ruled out the pos­si­bil­ity of in­volve­ment of any po­lit­i­cal party in the in­ci­dent. “We had heard that he left home and was not seen since the morn­ing. It doesn’t seem there is any po­lit­i­cal mo­tive in the in­ci­dent so far,” Mr Das said.
