The video of the first attack on the woman was widely broadcast on the day of the bandh. The video of the second attack was circulated on social media on Sunday.
On September 26, Ms De Sarkar was among some BJP supporters who had put up a rail block in the Barasat, about 40 km from Kolkata.
Suddenly, Trinamool supporters led by the local panchayat chief, Arshaduzzaman, charged at the BJP supporters. A cellphone video recorded by a witness shows Ms De Sarkar trying run away and avoid blows but is brutally kicked. She goes sprawling on the road in front of a level crossing. A policeman steps forward to stop further attacks on her. (NDTV Reports)
A little later, a reporter approached her to take her interview over the incident. While the camera rolls, she is brazenly attacked again. A Trinamool leader charges at her with a staff in hand and knocks Ms De Sarkar off her feet, sending her flying on the road again.
The attacker in the blue shirt has been identified by the BJP as Qutubuddin, an aide of Arshanduzzaman, the man who kicked Ms De Sarkar first.
The Trinamool is yet to comment officially on the incident.
