Party sources said the MP was taken to a private hospital for treatment. West Tripura superintendent of police, Manik Das said that some unidentified miscreants had damaged Dev"s car when she was conducting a public relations campaign and a police force was immediately rushed to the spot. She had personally visited Amtali police station and lodged a complaint and the situation in the area is under control, the police officer said. “TMC did not give any prior intimation before launching their political programme so police was not present there.
