The case is eerily similar to the murder of a BJP worker, Trilochan Mahato, in the same district in May 2018. Mahato's lifeless body was also found hanging from a tree.

Meanwhile, in February 2019, a Trinamool Congress worker was shot dead in West Bengal's Berhampore area of Murshidabad district. The deceased, identified as Naju Seikh, was the third TMC worker who was killed in a span of 12 hours.

Purulia parliamentary constituency in West Bengal will be voting in the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha election. Besides Purulia parliamentary constituency, Tamluk, Kanthi, Ghatal, Jhargram, Medinipur, Bankura, and Bishnupur are also going to polls in the Lok Sabha election 2019.

West Bengal has generally been seen as a state more prone to political violence, which earlier used to take place between cadres of the Trinamool and the CPI (M). However, as the BJP has continued to make inroads into eastern state, it has faced stiff resistance from the entrenched local political establishment.
