Singh is well known for being a RSS activist and had actively participated in the election campaign for Narendra Modi.
Situated in Southern Kolkata, Metiabruz is a Muslim dominated locality notorious for being house to many criminals and anti-socials. TMC leader and current mayor of Kolkata city, Firhad Hakim had once famously reffered to Metiabruz as the “Mini Pakistan.” The remark had caused a major furore in West Bengal.
Earlier this year, another RSS activist Bandhu Prakash Pal along with his wife and eight year old son were brutally murdered in Murshidabad district of the state. The police however claimed that personal disputes were the reason for the crime.
