West Bengal BJP has claimed that TMC goons were upset because BJP was gaining popularity in the village.

As a clash erupted between TMC workers and BJP workers in the area, TMC workers allegedly started firing. Sankari Bagdi was hit with a bullet. 6 other BJP supporters have also been injured in the clashes.

Reports say that the TMC goons had targeted Uday Bagdi but hit Sankari instead. Uday is a BJP worker too. As per a report in Hindustan Times, Uday has stated that TMC goons in the area were angry on him because he had quit the party and joined BJP. They had cooked up the story of an illicit affair and targetted Uday over it, claiming that he is involved in a relationship with a married woman in the village.

As the TMC workers started firing during the clash, Sankari reportedly came in the way of a bullet that was fired to kill Uday. Sankari Bagdi died on the spot. The police reached the crime scene and have taken the body away for postmortem. An investigation has been initiated but no one has been arrested so far.

The TMC has reportedly stated that Bagdi was not associated with the BJP. But Birbhum district BJP president Shyampad Mandal has stated that Bagdi was associated with the local BJP office. Abhijit Singha, TMC district unit vice president has claimed that the clashes were due to the infighting between two groups of villagers over Uday’s affair and not political in nature. The TMC has also claimed that Bagdi was not associated with the BJP.

It is notable here that West Bengal has been witnessing rampant political violence as the BJP slowly gains a foothold in the TMC ruled state. Dozens of BJP workers have been killed so far by TMC goons.
