Kolkata, Feb 10 : West Bengal police has named BJP leader Mukul Roy in the FIR and arrested two accused in connection with the murder of Trinamool Congress legislator Satyajit Biswas from West Bengal’s Nadia district.
Mukul Roy said,”In the entire state of West Bengal, when anybody is killed by their own people or by other miscreants,TMC and government try to implicate it that it is.”
“Mamata (West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee) is scared of us. It is on orders of Mamata that allegations are being levelled against BJP for this murder,” he added.
Apart from this, the Officer-In-Charge (OC) of Hanskhali Police Station has been suspended. Mukul Roy left TMC in 2017 and joined the BJP.
Biswas, a popular Dalit leader and an MLA from Nadia’s Krishnaganj constituency, was shot dead by unidentified assailants while attending a Saraswati Puja programme in Nadia on Saturday evening.
Locals revealed that there was “constant load shedding during the programme” and they smelt a conspiracy behind the outages.
“Two accused, Kartick Mondol and Sujit Mondol, have been arrested,” a senior police officer said.
“Satyajit Biswas was BJP’s target for a very long time. He had been a preventive wall of the attempts of Mukul Roy and Soumitra Thakur for movement of ‘Matua’ votes to BJP. The murder of Biswas is the handiwork of Mukul Roy. He is touring these days across the area to strengthen the BJP. He is the conspirator. Roy had earlier lashed out at Satyajit. We will fight it (the murder case) and ensure that justice is served,” ANI quoted Dutta as saying
The TMC and the BJP have been engaged in a bitter war of words since the killing.
While the TMC has alleged a BJP hand behind it, the latter had blamed the murder on the TMC’s internal feud.
