Kolkatta, June 2: A 30-year old BJP worker was found hanging from an electric pole in West Bengal’s Purulia on Saturday.
According to the media reports, the BJP alleged that the worker was murdered by TMC supporters for participating in a thana gherao protest organised by the party.
Meanwhile, reacting over the death of BJP worker, Party’s General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya urged the National Human Rights Commission to probe the matter.
He wrote to the NHRC “We do not trust state government, police, and the CID. We want NHRC do conduct a thorough investigation in the incident.”
Condemning the incident, Trinamool Congress leader Derek O’ Brien said “all angles must be probed. Perpetrators of the heinous act must be punished. What role did J’khand border play? What elements of Bajrang Dal, Maoist or BJP involved. Let truth be found by investigation.”
However, on Friday, the commission sent a notice to the West Bengal government over the death of a BJP worker.
This comes nearly three days after a similar incident was reported from the same district.
The body of an 18-year-old man, whom the saffron party claimed as its member, was found hanging from a tree near his home in Purulia district on May 30.
