BJP Worker Murdered in West Bengal

A BJP worker & booth president, 26-year-old Soumitra Ghoshal, was first tied up and thrashed before being choked to death at Baruipur in South 24 Parganas, WB. Locals and his family are alleging that he was murdered on account of political rivalry.

The news is absent from English MSM and has barely been reported in two Bengali digital media outlets – &

Soumitra, who was a murti-maker, was assaulted on Monday afternoon and his dead body was found tied to a pole around 5 PM on Monday evening.

As per local media reports quoted above, BJP’s South 24 Parganas district general secretary Sunip Das said, “Soumitra was gradually increasing the organization in the area, doing good work. So the ruling party killed him.” But TMC’s Baruipur block leader Shyamsundar Chakraborty denied the allegation.
