The body of a Bharatiya Janata Party was found hanging from a tree near Goghat railway station in Hooghly district of West Bengal on Sunday.
The BJP unit termed it as a ‘political killing’. The deceased has been identified as Ganesh Roy (60).
“Democracy murdered, again! Ganesh Roy, BJP worker from Goghat, Arambagh was found hanging, dead. These political killings must stop. Those who scream death of democracy at every instance are silent on the unabated killing of BJP workers under home minister Mamata Banerjee’ watch!” tweeted Bengal BJP’s Twitter handle on Sunday.
Roy’s son said that he was associated with BJP in Googhat and also alleged that his father was threatened of consequences by the local Trinamool workers during the 2019 General Elections.
The body has been taken for post mortem to find the exact reason of his death.
