West Bengal: BJP minority cell member Amir Ali killed in a clash in Hooghly, party blames TMC goons

Sheikh Amir Ali, who was an e-rickshaw driver in the area and an active member of the minority cell of the BJP, was allegedly beaten up during a clash on Sunday afternoon. Ali succumbed to his injuries at Calcutta Medical College in Kolkata.

Another BJP worker in Arambagh area of Hooghly district fell prey to the political violence which has been continuing unchecked in the state of West Bengal. A 32-year-old BJP minority cell member Amir Ali was killed allegedly by TMC supporters and workers on October 27 (Sunday). Four people have been arrested so far in connection to the killing.

Blaming the TMC goons for the murder, the BJP has called for a 12-hour bandh in Arambagh on Wednesday. Trinamool Congress has, however, denied the allegations calling it a “fallout of personal enmity”.

Police said that the situation in the area remained tense after the victim, Sheikh Amir Ali, who was an e-rickshaw driver in the area and an active member of the minority cell of the BJP, was allegedly beaten up during the group clash on Sunday afternoon. Ali succumbed to his injuries at Calcutta Medical College in Kolkata.

The police have arrested four people, including two women named Chhobi Bibi and Tagari Bibi for instigating Amir’s murder.

Once news of the death reached Arambag, BJP workers from nearby villages gathered at Amir’s locality and blocked the Kolkata-Arambag Road around 12.30 pm. Riled BJP workers went on a rampage, vandalising four TMC offices in the area since Sunday. West Bengal police have arrested two BJP workers in this connection, confirmed sources.

Those arrested include two named in the FIR, Chhobi Bibi and Tagari Bibi, for allegedly instigating the groups, while police nabbed two others not named in the FIR.

“We have arrested four people in the case. The investigation is on. The motive of the murder is yet to be known. He had multiple injuries on the body, but we are waiting for the post-mortem report,” said a senior police officer.

TMC ruled West Bengal has a history of political violence which has aggravated ever since BJP has made successful inroads into the state. BJP has long been alleging its workers are being targetted and killed for political gains.
