A BJP office in West Bengal's Arambagh region has been set ablaze as violence breaks out even as counting continues for Assembly elections in the state.

TV9 journalist Anindya Banerjee who posted a clip of the arson said that TMC has denied charges of its involvement.

Earlier, as per reports, the BJP's office in Kolkata in Hastings was gheraoed soon after trends emerged in TMC's favour.

Fears have been raised over possible retribution against ordinary BJP workers following the culmination of the assembly election results. Bengal which has had a long history of political violence has seen the deaths of as many as 300 BJP workers in the past few years.

The TMC has proved pollsters wrong as it is set to comprahensively sweep the state with over 200 seats. The BJP is a distant second with double digit leads.
