“It says due to asphyxia, due to hanging, antemortem and suicidal in nature,” Magharia said. “Further enquiry is on,” he added.

32-year-old Dulal Kumar, who went missing on Friday, was found hanging by a pole in Dabha village of Purulia’s Balarampur. BJP alleged that the ruling-Trinamool Congress was behind the incident.

On Saturday morning, the villagers were taken aback to find Dulal’s body hanging from a high-tension pole, just three and a half feet above the ground, so near the Balarampur-Bagmundi Road.

Taking to Twitter, BJP National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said that Dulal’s murder is quite similar to the lines with that of Trilochan Mahato, a BJP activist.

Dulal death comes in the wake of the alleged murder of a 18-year-old BJP worker Trilochan Mahato on Wednesday. Trilochan Mahato was found hanging from a tree near his home in Purulia district.

West Bengal Police said the investigation of Dulal’s murder has been handed over to Crime Investigation Department (CID).
