There are apprehensions that he might flee the country following the incident on Friday in which three ED officers were injured and several vehicles damaged by a mob at Sandeshkhali in North 24 Parganas district.

“We have issued a lookout notice for the TMC leader and necessary instructions have been sent to the Airports Authority of India,” the ED officer told PTI.
