Another BJP worker shot to death allegedly by TMC supporters in West Bengal

A BJP leader had alleged that a woman identified as Saraswati Das (42), an active BJP worker from Amlani gram panchayat in North 24 Parganas district's Hannibal, was allegedly murdered by Trinamool Congress (TMC) supporters on Thursday evening.

The violence in the state of West Bengal doesn’t seem to abate. The violence which has been a hallmark of Mamata Banerjee’s government in West Bengal has claimed another BJP worker’s life. A BJP woman leader was shot to death in North 24 Parganas district, allegedly by TMC supporters said the state BJP sources said on Friday.

A BJP leader had alleged that a woman identified as Saraswati Das (42), an active BJP worker from Amlani gram panchayat in North 24 Parganas district’s Hannibal, was allegedly murdered by Trinamool Congress (TMC) supporters on Thursday evening.

The police have recovered Das’ blood-drenched body from her residence on Thursday evening. “The cause of her death is a bullet injury on her head. We are probing if the woman had any political or personal rivalry,” police added. No arrests have been made yet in the case.

The 24 Parganas district has been on the tenterhooks ever since last Saturday when at least three people were killed in violent clashes between TMC and BJP workers in Sandeshkhali. The BJP has accused that two of its workers were shot dead by TMC-backed goons.

The 17th Lok Sabha elections witnessed a remarkable spurt in the political violence in West Bengal as Mamata Banerjee’s TMC lost tremendous ground to the saffron party. Several instances of poll violence allegedly committed by TMC goons were reported.

West Bengal is already in throes of a war between the state government and the medical fraternity after doctors staging strike against the violence meted out on them were manhandled by the Mamata Banerjee’s government for defying her ultimatum of abandoning their strikes.
