BJP worker lynched to death in West Bengal’s Bardhaman allegedly for raising “Jai Shree Ram” slogans

A BJP worker was lynched to death on Thursday at Ketugram Village of West Bengal’s Purba Bardhaman District, as the party was preparing to celebrate the second NDA government under the leadership of Prime Minster Narendra Modi.

According to BJP sources, the elderly BJP worker was preparing for the celebrations which were to be held later in the evening, while raising slogans of “Jai Shree Ram.” Amid this, some unknown miscreants attacked on him using lethal weapons.

The BJP worker who had sustained fatal wounds was later rushed to a hospital where he was declared dead.

Earlier on Sunday a BJP worker was shot dead by unidentified assailants last night in the Bhatpara constituency of North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal. Chandan Shaw, 30, a resident of Kakinara, was shot dead on Sunday night. “Two individuals have been held for inquiry and the case is at a very early stage,” a senior officer of Barrackpore Police Commissionerate said.

Ever since the beginning of Lok Sabha elections, West Bengal had been witnessing widespread violence which doesn’t seem to be ending even as the polls are now well over. Around six months before the Lok Sabha elections, West Bengal witnessed simar violent scenes during the Panchayat polls in the state during which a minimum number of 30 people lost lives.
