The Bharatiya Janata Party(BJP) is strongly alleging that a 28-year-old man was killed by Trinamool activists at Swarupganj in Nabadwip block in West Bengal’s Nadia district for being a supporter of the saffron party, reports The Hindu.

“A youngster named Krishna Debnath was brutally murdered by Trinamool goons for supporting BJP and chanting ‘Jai Shri Ram’. [Chief Minister] Mamata Banerjee’s bloodthirsty politics will soon see its end,” BJP MP and Union Minister of State Babul Supriyo tweeted, expressing his anguish over the brutality.

Defending itself against the accusations, the Trinamool Congress said that the death had nothing to do with politics.

Meanwhile, the police had, prima facie, ruled out any political connection to the murder. Sirajul Shiekh, a gram panchayat chief said that the man was drunk and he reportedly misbehaved with a woman, prompting some residents to beat him up.

"Krishna Debnath was attacked late in the evening on 3 July when he was returning home. Later, he was found in a pool of blood near a local club. He was rushed to Shantinagar Hospital locally. His health deteriorated and he was referred to NRS Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata where he died on Friday. On Saturday, local BJP leadership held a road blockade with the body in the area," said a police officer said on the condition of anonymity.
