On Thursday morning, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) worker was found dead in West Bengal’s Purulia district. The BJP worker’s body was found hanging from a tree in Senabona village under Aarsa police station of Purulia District, West Bengal.

According to reports, the deceased has been identified as 22-year-old Sisupal Sahis. The area is reportedly tense after the body of a BJP worker was found hanging. The residents of the village found the body hanging from a tree in the morning hours. The police reached the spot and the investigation in the case is underway. The police are trying to ascertain if it was a case of suicide or murder.

The BJP has claimed that Sisupal Sahis was a member of BJP Youth Morcha and his father is a deputy pradhan of the Sirkabad Gram Panchayat. The BJP is also alleging that the TMC has a hand in the incident.

On the other hand, violence marred the second phase of elections here on Thursday as BJP’s Raiganj Parliamentary constituency candidate Debasree Chaudhuri alleged that TMC workers tried to capture a polling booth in the constituency. Meanwhile, police had to resort to lathi-charge and tear-gas to clear the blockade at Chopra which falls under Darjeeling parliamentary constituency.
