Kolkata: In a huge embarrassment for the Trinamool Congress (TMC), its councillor Mohammed Iqbal alias Munna, one of the accused in the sub-inspector murder case in violence in Garden Reach area in February 2013, claimed that he was advised by some key party leaders to go into hiding.

The unarmed sub-inspector Tapas Choudhury was shot dead during a clash between Congress and Trinamool supporters at Hari Mohan Ghosh College in Garden Reach area on February 2012. The incident happened in the run-up to the college elections.

Munna, who was arrested on Thursday night at Dehgir on Sone in Bihar, has been brought to Kolkata by a CID team on transit remand. Munna confessed to the CID team before boarding the train from Gaya. He will be produced in court later on Saturday.
