Cong candidate 'attacked' in Bengal while campaigning

Malda (WB), Apr 11 (PTI) Congress candidate for Manikchak assembly constituency in West Bengal, Md Mottakin Alam, was allegedly attacked by miscreants during campaigning in the area, the party claimed on Sunday.

The vehicle of party MP Abu Hasem Khan Chowdhury, who was accompanying Alam, was also vandalised, it said.
