BJYM Activist Seriously Injured, Referred To Kolkata For Better Treatment


A supporter of Tripura Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), the youth wing of the BJP, sustained a serious injury on his face during the party’s victory march as a firecracker burst in his hand.
The BJYM activist identified as Kathamrita Ghosh was seriously injured while bursting fireworks during the party’s victory celebrations at Agartala on Monday. His face and eyes were injured as the cracker exploded in his hands.
He was immediately rushed to GB Hospital in Agartala, and he was subsequently shifted to Calcutta for advanced treatment.
The BJP has won three of the four seats in the by-elections in Tripura. The BJP youth wing organized a victory rally to celebrate the party’s win, where the workers of BJYM burst fireworks.
According to sources, he was repeatedly warned while lighting fireworks. However, instead of listening to his party colleagues, he went to check the firework which was showing no signs of the explosion at first glance, and became a victim of the accident.
