Chatterjee had then said the TMC government was sure of the RSS role in the incident.

"We are certain of the RSS role in the incident. They got people from outside. They caused the death as they want to do the politics of death. We condemn the politics of death practiced by the RSS and BJP, and we shall continue our protest against it," he had reportedly said.
