KOLKATA: A delegation of state Congress leaders on Wednesday met West Bengal Governor Kesari Nath Tripathi and demanded that people behind the killing of its student wing member Krishnaprasad Jana inside a college in West Midnapore on August 7 should be arrested immediately.  

The delegation led by Congress veterans Abdul Mannan and Manas Bhunia also alleged that district SP Bharati Ghosh was nabbing members of the party’s student wing Chhatra Parishad and keeping them behind bars to please CM hief Minister Mamata Banerjee.
