Kolkata, Jan 25 — Former Trinamool Congress legislator Arabul Islam was Friday sent to jail for seven days for allegedly leading attacks against a convoy of CPI-M supporters in South 24 Parganas district earlier this month.

The former Bhangar legislator was produced in the Baruipur sub-divisional court Friday, which rejected his bail plea in the convoy attack case.

Arabul was arrested Jan 17 and sent to five days' police custody for his alleged involvement in the attack on Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) lawmaker Abdur Rezzak Mollah Jan 6 and the convoy two days later at Bamonghata in Bhangor II Block.

On Jan 18, Arabul was admitted to the state-run SSKM hospital while in custody after he complained of chest pain.

He was Jan 21 granted bail in the case relating to the violence targeted at Mollah.

In the Convoy attack case, the judge went through the case diary and heard both the prosecution and the defence lawyers before rejecting the bail plea made by Arabul's lawyer and remanded the Trinamool leader to jail till Jan 31.

The judge, however, asked the jail authorities to arrange for Arabul's regular medical check up and treatment if there be such a need.

Mollah, a senior legislator, was severely beaten up allegedly by Trinamool workers led by Islam Jan 6 when he went to Bamanghata area where a CPI-M office had been damaged.

The veteran Marxist is still in hospital with multiple injuries, including a lumber bone fracture. The attack caused a political uproar, with the opposition and the civil society expressing concern over the law and order situation.

The disturbances stretched to Jan 8 when a number of political activists were injured in firing and clashes between the Trinamool and CPI-M.

Annoyed over the clashes, Governor M.K. Narayanan had then said: "This is not a good political culture. I think some sort of goondaism is going on here."
