After storming into a hospital waving a gun and threatening hospital staff in Birbhum district in West Bengal, a former Trinamool Congress member Ashish Dey was arrested and is likely to be produced before a court today.
Dey was arrested on Sunday and was slapped with non-bailable charges. He is scheduled to be produced in court today, NDTV reported.
"He first started a verbal spat with our employees accompanied by a group who repeatedly pleaded with them to leave the hospital premises. Dey then suddenly whipped out a revolver and threatened our staff," the hospital's managing director JP Khaitan told NDTV.
Dey was accompanied by other Trinamool party activists and student-wing activists when he stormed into the hospital on Friday.
The reason behind the Dey's outburst was reportedly over the induction of a doctor in the hospital, CNN IBN reported.
However, the Trinamool Congress washed its hands off Dey.
"Ashish Dey is no more with our party. He was suspended a couple of years back," Trinamool MP Shatabdi Roy said.
