According to Bengal BJP worker Pratyush Singh, the dog refuses to leave the site of the last rites of Avijit Sarkar.
On May 2, BJP worker Avijit Sarkar took to Facebook to narrate the violence that he was subjected to by the TMC goons. The video got uploaded just hours before he was lynched to death by the miscreants. “I don’t know how to come live (on Facebook). They hurled bombs right in front of my eyes and vandalized my house and the party office. My only mistake is that I am a BJP worker,” he said in the video.
Then he also pointed towards his dog and lamented, “I had brought her from Sealdah. She had given birth to some puppies. They slaughtered the puppies mercilessly.” The BJP worker had broken down into tears and said that the attack took place in Ward no. 30 in the Beleghata neighbourhood in Kolkata under the supervision of TMC leaders Paresh Paul and Swapan Samandar. Sarkar recounted that his puppies were also hacked to death by the accused.
Later, Avijit Sarkar was dragged outside of his home, brutally assaulted, and strangled with a cable TV wire. His dead body was discovered at some distance from his house.
