Purulia: BJP party on saturday calls for 12 hours bandh in Purulia district for ongoing violence. Earlier on the day, BJP worker was found hanging from an electric pole in Balarampur town of Purulia district in second such incident this week.
The deceased was identified as 32-year-old Dulal Kumar, the BJP secretary in Balarampur’s Block 10 Zila Parishad. His body was found in a farm land near his house.
ADG (Law and Order) Anuj Sharma said the investigation has been handed over to the CID. “A conspiracy is suspected as two incidents have occurred in the same district. The role of outsiders is being looked into,” he said. The saffron party alleged that Dulal was “abducted” by Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers and “brutally killed”.
BJP president Amit shah tweets on Saturday that ‘I express my deepest condolences to the bereaved family. I along with millions of BJP karyakartas share grief of Dulal Kumar’s family. May God give his family the strength to withstand this irreparable loss.
Distressed to know about yet another killing of BJP karyakarta Dulal Kumar in Balrampur, West Bengal. This continued brutality and violence in the land of West Bengal is shameful and inhuman. Mamata Banerjee’s govt has completely failed to maintain law and order in the state.’
