Two persons were arrested on Thursday night in connection with the murder of local tough Srinu Naidu and his accomplice V Dharma at Kharagpur in West Midnapore district.
A police officer said the two – Sanjoy Prasad and Krishna Rao – were arrested from Ghatal in the district as they went to a doctor to treat the hand injury apparently caused by the throwing of bombs and firing during the attack at the TMC Councillor’s office on Wednesday.
Both the arrested were at one time close to Srinu and apparently fell out over real estate spoils in the area, the officer added.
Srinu and Dharma died while three others were seriously injured when miscreants fired at them inside the party office at Kharagpur yesterday.
The two along with three other TMC workers were sitting inside the TMC office at Nayakhuli locality of Kharagpur when the attack took place on them.
