Kolkata, November 8: Tension is prevailing in Nidhirampur village in West Bengal's Bankura district after the body of a local BJP leader was found hanging from the branch of a tree by the local villagers on Wednesday. The deceased was identified as Subhadeep Mishra. He contested in the recently concluded polls for the three- tier panchayat system in West Bengal.
He went missing for the last seven days
His family members said that he went missing for the last seven days and finally on Wednesday morning his body was spotted hanging from a tree in the locality. His hands were tied.
BJP legislator refused to hand over the body to the cops
As the police reached the spot to recover the body of the deceased leader, the local BJP legislator from the Saltora Assembly constituency Chandana Bauri started an agitation and refused to hand over the body to the cops. Even Bauri was seen lying down in front of the police vehicle in order to prevent them from taking away the body of the deceased BJP leader.
TMC was scared of growing popularity of the deceased BJP leader
The leader of the opposition, Suvendu Adhikari claimed that Mishra was murdered as the local goons associated with the ruling Trinamool Congress were scared of the growing popularity of the deceased BJP leader in the area. The leader of the opposition also demanded that the role of Bankura district Police Superintendent Vaibhav Tiwari should also be investigated thoroughly in the matter.
'I demand CBI investigation'
“District Police units are nothing but Trinamool Congress cadres in uniform. Their only job is to ensure that Trinamool Congress's existence continues as long as possible. I demand CBI investigation as police would do their best to tamper evidence and protect the culprits who belong to the ruling TMC party, in order to please their political masters,” he said.
