The Election Commission of India (ECI) have sought a report from the state police on the alleged attack on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Wednesday, reported PTI. Banerjee was injured following the alleged attack at Nandigram constituency.

Banerjee was injured in the leg after being allegedly pushed by unidentified people near a temple at Reyapara area during her poll campaign at Nandigram, where she is pitted against former party member Suvendu Adhikari, who is contesting from the BJP.

An official of the state CEO’s office said, “We have sought a report from the state police administration. The report must be sent quickly.”

Banerjee alleged that her leg got swollen because of the injury and she was feeling feverish.  According to her, no local police personnel was present at the spot when the incident happened.

The TMC leader said, “I was standing outside my car with the door open. I was going to a temple there to offer my prayers. Few people came around my car and pushed the door. The door hit my leg.” She added that  four or five people might have deliberately pushed her causing the injury.
