Effort was being made to arrest the culprits, he said. Bose alleged that five more houses were also damaged and the attackers allegedly belonged to the Trinamool Congress.

However, local TMC leaders denied any involvement of their workers in the incident. Nadia district goes to poll tomorrow in the third phase of assembly elections in the state.
