West Bengal: BJP worker Dalu Sheikh killed after crude bombs were hurled at him by TMC workers

Locals alleged TMC being behind the incident and also said that the police arrived late.

Atrocities on BJP cadres continue in Mamata Banerjee’s West Bengal. A 50-year-old BJP worker named Dalu Sheikh died after miscreants hurled crude bombs towards him in West Bengal’s Birbhum district on Sunday.

“Dalu Sheikh, 50, died due to a bomb injury on Saturday night,” a police officer of Labhpur police station said.

According to reports, Dalu was returning to his residence in Mirbadh from the Daraka village, when he was allegedly attacked by TMC workers with crude bombs. He was accompanied by another person, who has reportedly been missing since last night’s incident.

After Sheikh succumbed to his serious injuries, angry locals blocked a part of the road for two hours and prevented the police from taking away Dalu’s corpse. The situation was, however, controlled after a massive police force rushed to the spot.

Locals alleged TMC being behind the incident and also said that the police arrived late. BJP also accused TMC of their party worker’s murder. They claimed that the state’s ruling party has been resorting to violence as retribution ever since it has been losing ground in the state.

However, the TMC has dismissed the allegations and said that the murder has resulted from intra-party conflicts between old BJP workers and new converts.

West Bengal has been a hotbed for political violence ever since BJP has made successful inroads into the state. Sporadic incidents of political violence and vandalism have been reported both pre and post the election seasons. The violence has, however, not been confined to the election season. Mamata and her cadre’s intolerance remains unchecked until recently. The state has been observing similar situations ever since, wherein the TMC goons have been unleashing terror over something as little as chanting “Jai Shri Ram’ slogans.
