Former Health Minister and Congress candidate in 6-Agartala constituency in upcoming by-elections Sudip Roy Barman suffered severe injuries in an attack by the miscreants at Ujan Abhoynagar here early Monday.

He has been admitted to a private hospital. Sources said Mr. Barman and the State Youth Congress President Rakhu Das went to the locality after hearing about an assault on Congress supporter Bapi Goswami.

Sources said Mr. Barman did not take security guards along with him. He was attacked with bricks and sticks, they added.

Earlier on May 2 a security staff and driver of Sudip Roy Barman were wounded in an attack by bike-borne miscreants outside the residence of a senior advocate. Barman, however, had escaped unhurt.

Security deployment intensified in the city to quell tension.

By-elections in four assembly constituencies will be held on June 23.
