West Bengal: Another BJP Worker Dead, Found Hanging From Tree In Purulia; Party Alleges Trinamool HandShah and Mamata

In yet another suspected instance of political violence in West Bengal, a BJP worker has been found dead hanging from a tree in the state’s Purulia district today (18 April) morning, reports Times Now.

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.

In the present case, the father of the deceased is also a member of the local Panchayat. Although the police have reached the spot, there has been no official statement on the matter yet.

Local BJP leaders have alleged that the death is a political murder committed by Trinamool workers.

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.
