Suri: Panic spread in Birbhum on Monday after a Trinamool Congress worker was allegedly brutally killed. The incident took place on Monday evening in Birbhum’s Kirnahar.
According to the police and locals, the name of the deceased TMC worker is Sagar Sheikh. He was the leader of Lavpur’s Thiba area. He was also a member of the ruling party’s core committee at the block level.
Sagar was returning from Kirnahar with his daughter when he was attacked. Miscreants suddenly attacked him. They first shot him and then started bombing.
The area was filled with smoke after heavy bombing. After this, it was seen that
Sagar Sheikh was lying dead. The police rushed to the spot after getting
information and recovered the body.
The police is yet to say anything. They said that they will inform after the post-
mortem reports come in.
As per locals, Sagar’s daughter is safe. She suffered minor injuries as the miscreants threw her from the bike. But she is in trauma after seeing her father die in front of her.
The oppositions have said that it was the result of factional feud of the TMC party. CPM leader of central committee Ramchandra Dom said that the CPM does not believe in murder politics.
However, the TMC has rejected such claims by the CPM. Party district chief Anubrata
Mondal said that CPM goons are behind this. Due to his popularity in the area, Sagar was killed.
