The entire incident took place on the outskirts of Agartala. 

However, the BJP has distanced itself from the incident.

At the same time, Congress alleges that this attack took place when the police was going to the detention center with them.

An eyewitness said that this attack took place when Congress leaders and workers had returned from Bharat Jodo Padyatra and reached between Ranirbazar and Khayarpur.

The police had arrested us during the padyatra.

The police were taking us and many of our leaders into custody.

During this, many leaders were with the police, while many were going to the police station in their private vehicle.

Our leaders were attacked by BJP goons in front of the police and the police kept watching.
