On Wednesday, three Trinamool Congress supporters were arrested after a video of obscene dance and display of vulgarity in public surfaced during a celebration in West Bengal's South 24 Parganas district, the police said. The video showing a skimpily dressed female dancer performing on stage and a man accompanying her making objectionable moves has embarrassed the state's ruling party. The video was recorded and circulated by some locals.

"Three individuals - Shyamal Ghosh, Bapi Sheikh, and Chhakbat Mollah - have been arrested, while Ansar Mollah, the organiser of the event, is still absconding," an officer at Kashipur police station said.

The officer said Ansar Mollah is a leader of the Shanpukur gram panchayat, while the three arrested individuals are Trinamool supporters. The event was a victory celebration of the Trinamool Congress organised on Monday in Bhangar, which comes under the Jadavpur Lok Sabha constituency.

Trinamool Congress' Mimi Chakraborty won the Jadavpur seat by a huge margin of 2,95,239 votes in the recently-concluded Lok Sabha polls.
