Another BJP worker found dead in West Bengal, CID takes over investigation
A BJP worker found hanging from an electric pole in Balarampur in Purulia district of West Bengal on Saturday. BJP has alleged that the worker was murdered by TMC supporters for participating in a thana gherao protest organised by the BJP.
The BJP worker has been identified as Dulal Kumar (32). The investigation of Balrampur incident has been handed over to Crime Investigation Department (CID).
TMC leader Derek O' Brien said, "Strongly condemn this despicable act. All angles must be probed. Perpetrators of the heinous act must be punished. What role did J'khand border play? What elements of Bajrang Dal, Maoist or BJP involved. Let the truth be found by investigation."
This is the second incidence where a BJP worker was allegedly murdered by TMC workers in West Bengal.
The dead body of Trilochan Mahato (18) was found hanging by a tree with a poster stuck to his back on May 30.
"Being involved with BJP politics at the age of 18 claimed your life. I have been searching for you since the elections and now you are dead," read the handwritten poster in Bengali.
