Days after a Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader was shot dead at his home in West Bengal’s North Dinajpur district, another BJP leader has been hacked to death at Bhagwanpur in East Midnapore district of the state.

While the BJP is holding the Trinamool Congress responsible for the murder, the ruling party has denied the charge.

The incident took place on Saturday night when Shambhu Maiti (36), the head of BJP’s Shakti Kendra in Chandipur Assembly constituency, was picked up from the road side and hacked to death. His body was recovered from the banks of Keleghai river on Sunday morning.
