KOLKATA: Even as outrage continues over his alleged remarks threatening to have CPI(M) workers killed and their women raped, Trinamool MP Tapas Pal landed in fresh trouble as another video tape emerged today in which he asks his own party supporters to slit the throats of opposition workers.

"I am saying this. Those who kill people can't be humans.......As long as I am with you, don't spare any CPI(M) worker. I am telling my boys," Pal said while addressing people at a village in Nadia district.

"I am also telling women that you must be aware of kitchen vegetable cutters (Boti). Just slit their throats with them," Pal said.

The footage aired on a television channel showed that Pal made those remarks on the same day as he had threatened to kill CPI(M) workers and get their women folk raped by his boys.

It was telecast just hours after Pal tendered an unconditional apology for his earlier comments after being asked by an embarrassed party leadership to do so following a widespread outrage.
