West Bengal violence: Two dead and three injured in BJP-TMC clashes in Bhatpara

On Tuesday, a 28-year-old, Bharatiya Janata Party youth wing (BJYM) activist Anandapal was found dead in West Bengal with his throat slit and several injuries on the body

There seems to be no end to political violence in the state of West Bengal as two people have been killed and three others injured as clashes broke out between Trinamool Congress and BJP supporters in West Bengal’s Bhatpara on Thursday.

According to the reports, one of the deceased has been identified as 17-year-old Rambabu Shaw, a BJP supporter who sold Pani Puri for a living. Another person is identified as Dharmendra Shaw.

“The deceased has been identified as Rambabu Shaw and Dharmendra Shaw, while the details of those injured in the incident were yet to be ascertained,” the police officials said.

Reportedly, bombs were hurled and several bullets were fired in the air during the clash between the two groups near a newly constructed police station, which was scheduled for inauguration on Thursday.

A team of police officers along with Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel has been deployed in the area, with shops, market places and business establishments seen downing shutters following the unrest. Bhatpara has witnessed a series of clashes since May 19, when by-poll was held in the assembly constituency.

On Tuesday, in a similar incident of political violence, a 28-year-old, Bharatiya Janata Party youth wing (BJYM) activist Anandapal was found dead in West Bengal with his throat slit and several injuries on the body as post-poll violence continues unabated in the state.

Anandpal’s body was found near a water body at Kanthaltala under Duaguri gram panchayat. There were several wounds in his body apart from the slit throat.

The law and order situation in the state has been deteriorating immensely under Mamata Banerjee with a massive spike in political murders and violent mob attacking medical institutions across the state. With Mamata Banerjee fighting for political relevance in the state, it appears that the end of political violence in the state will be unlikely in the near future.
