The condition of the youth, who had slapped West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee at a rally yesterday, was stated to be critical after he suffered multiple head injuries.

Attending doctors at the Tamluk Hospital, where he was admitted after being thrashed by Trinamool Congress workers, said the condition of Debashis Acharya was ‘critical’.

The doctors said that Acharya, who has deep wounds in his head at three places and in other parts of the body was slipping in and out of consciousness.

Acharya was beaten up by Trinamool Congress partymen after he slapped Banerjee, who is also the president of the Trinamool Youth Congress, at a rally at Chandipur in East Midnapore district yesterday.

The family members of Acharya were unavailable at their house in Tamluk when visiting newsmen found it bolted from outside.

Meanwhile, two persons, who were reportedly seen with Acharya at the meeting at Chandipur before he assaulted Banerjee, were detained for interrogation today, a top district police officer said.

They were identified as Tamal and Pallab from Tamluk and Contai respectively, the officer said.

A third person, who was also accompanying the three at the meeting, as stated by eyewitnesses, was also picked up for questioning, but later allowed to leave.
