VHP leader returning from Yogi’s Purulia rally goes missing under mysterious circumstances

Two BJP workers Trilochan Mahto and Dulal Kumar had also gone missing from the same Balrampur area last year and were found murdered later.

A Vishwas Hindu Parishad Leader, Kartik Kumar Ghorai went missing, while he was on his way back home from Yogi Adityanath’s rally in Purulia on Tuesday, reported MyNation.

A missing complaint has been filed in Balarampur Police station. Sources said that Kartik after attending Yogi’s rally was returning home on his motorbike when suddenly he went missing midway. His motorbike and mobile phone were recovered in damaged conditions.

The BJP claimed that the Trinamool Congress (TMC) goons are behind his abduction.

The Police have started the investigation but Ghorai, after two days, still remains untraceable.

Despite West Bengal Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee’s futile efforts of stopping Yogi Adityanath from entering West Bengal, UP CM dodged all the impediments and finally arrived at Purulia, West Bengal on road from Bokaro to address a rally on Tuesday. A sea of a crowd had gathered to listen to Yogi Adityanath who spoke about the pervasive violence in West Bengal and urged the people to vote her out.

However, according to ABP Ananda, Kartik Ghorai, on his way back, had sensed trouble and called up his friend, Subir Ghosh, informing him that two vehicles were following his bike and calling out his name threatening to kill him. Soon after, he went missing, confirmed his friends, who later lodged a missing complaint at Balarampur police station.

Speaking to MyNation, family members of the VHP leader have confirmed the incident. His son, who is barely eight years old, said, “I don’t know where he has gone. He told me he will be back and even promised to take me out this morning to buy books for my school. But so far, he hasn’t returned.”

BJP leader, Chandra Kumar Bose said, “This is serious. People are picked up, they go missing, they are found dead, it’s dangerous. We have spoken to home minister Rajnath Singh about the law and order situation. Leaders may get security cover, but what about our cadres? They feel threatened.

This is not the first time, though, that a BJP worker has been targetted in West Bengal. Previously also, the TMC workers, who remain hostile towards the BJP party, have been responsible for assaulting them.

Acts of savageness due to extreme animosity have become common in West Bengal under the TMC supremacy. BJP workers have in the past few months, succumbed to a string of brutal political murders and political rapes.

Last year, Trilochan Mahato and Dulal Kumar, both BJP workers, were found in two villages of Purulia on May 31 and June 2. While Mahato’s body was hanging from a tree, that of Kumar was hanging from a high tension electric pole. Both Mahato and Dulal Kumar had gone missing from the same Balrampur area and were found murdered later.

BJP had gained considerable support in Purulia during the panchayat elections.

Dharmaraj Hazra, another BJP worker who was murdered in July 2018, with his body found floating in a lake in Murshidabad district was the third such incident in a span of a month.

It was reported last month that a lady had been brutally gang-raped by four men in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district for being the wife of a BJP worker.

Apart from resorting to such heinous crimes, the TMC goons have also been regularly reported attacking BJP worker’s, vandalising BJP offices etc. Recently, in a scuffle which broke out between the TMC cadres and BJP workers, ahead of PM Modi’s rally in West Bengal’s Durgapur on February 2, the TMC goons had reportedly assaulted a BJP worker while replacing PM Modi’s posters with Mamata Banerjee’s posters.
