The TMC, which is making its base strong in Tripura, had recently appointed Ashish Lal Singh as the party president in the state. “We are ashamed. The IPAC team came and from night they are undergoing verification and they are almost in house arrest. The BJP is scared is this democracy?” asked Singh, who is also the son of Sachindra Lal Singh, the first chief minister of Tripura.

“Our people have been literally put under house arrest for what reason we don’t know. We are looking into the matter,” said the I-PAC.

However, the local police denied the allegations and stated that they were doing verification of the visitors.
