BJP calls a 12 hour bandh

News Desk: West Bengal BJP called a 12-hour bandh on Monday after a 34-year-old man was found hanging in a mango orchard at Gayeshpur city in Nadia district on Sunday. The arch rival claimed that victim Bijoy Shil was its worker and was killed by TMC workers, but the ruling party denied. A local TMC leader said, “There is no political connection to this case. The BJP has learnt this new tactic to gain sympathy by turning every suicide or murder into a political murder”

As per sources, Shil left home in Gayeshpur on Saturday evening and did not return until the next morning. His family received information about his death after locals found him hanging from a tree in the morning . Earlier police suspected it to be suicide but later clarified that they are waiting for the post-mortem report.

On this the BJP tweeted “Bijoy Shil, only aged 34 and an active BJP worker, was murdered and found hanging in Nadia. Same pattern in every murder by the goons. Use of terror to stop the working of BJP? We won’t stop and the BJP will ensure justice for all the murdered workers! These political ‘murders’ must stop”

On Saturday, the BJP had called a bandh in Birbhum’s Mallarpur area after a minor was found hanging at a police station. They claimed that the boy was killed as his family members were BJP supporters. Later, the boy’s family said that they were TMC supporters and their boy had committed suicide.
