The town of Khanakul has the air of a dysfunctional family with a secret to keep. Their MLA, Iqbal Ahmed, is one of the key figures in the Narada News scam.

Even during the days of CPI(M) rule in Bengal, the town had seen some serious political violence.

In the last five years, houses have been burnt and people have been killed. Yet no one wants to admit that their little town is not peaceful, at least publicly.
