Burdwan (WB): On Thursday, a Bhartiya Janta Party worker was stabbed to death in West Bengal's West Burdwan district on Thursday, police said. The deceased identified as Sushil Mondal was killed allegedly by a Trinamool Congress activist following an altercation over putting up BJP flags at Panduk village under Ketugram police station limits. Local Trinamool leaders, however, claimed Mondal was a victim of the party’s internal feud.
According to the police, Mondal’s wife had lodged a complaint against three persons who are absconding. According to the complaint, Mondal was putting up BJP flags in the village when the three objected. An altercation followed and one of them stabbed Mondal with a dagger in the abdomen.
Mondal's wife said in her complaint that her husband was putting up BJP flags in the village when three persons objected and, during an altercation, one of the three stabbed him with a dagger in the abdomen. He was immediately rushed to a local hospital where he was declared brought dead. Local BJP leader Anil Dutta said TMC killed Mondal to create terror in the area as the saffron party has performed well in the Lok Sabha elections.
