Responding to the allegations, Chowdhury said the allegations are true but that was during the time of the CPIM led government in Tripura when Manik Sarkar was the CM. He added numerous cases of political murders including a CPIM Minister Bimal Sinha, MLAs and an SDM took place but none of the culprits was arrested as the ruling party was behind all the murders to remain in power.
