The body of a BJP worker was found hanging from a tree in Gayeshpur of Nadia district in West Bengal on Sunday.
According to reports, the deceased man was identified as Bijoy Shil (34). He was an active BJP worker in the area. His residence is in Ward No. 4 of Gayeshpur Municipality in the district. Some locals saw Shil's body hanging in a mango orchard near the cremation area on Sunday.
His family told reporters that it was a murder. The BJP said that he was killed by political goons and then hanged. BJP national secretary Arvind Menon accused the Trinamool Congress of killing the BJP worker.
"Bijoy Shil, only aged 34 and an active BJP worker murdered and found hanging in Nadia. Same pattern in every murder by the goons. Use of terror to stop the working of BJP? We won't stop and BJP will ensure justice for all the murdered workers! These political 'Murders' must stop," The BJP Bengal said in a tweet.
BJP national vice-president Mukul Roy tweeted: "Bijoy Sil, member of BJP, has been cruelly murdered. The pattern remains the same. This time it is in Gayeshpur constituency, Nadia Kalyani. The law and order of West Bengal has totally gone awry. The Hon'ble Gov @jdhankhar1 Ji, please take cognizance."
