The bodies of two BJP workers were found in different parts of West Bengal, with the saffron party claiming that they were killed by Trinamool Congress supporters. The TMC, however, rubbished the allegation levelled by BJP. Police said BJP worker Indrajit Sutradhar was found hanging from the ceiling of a room with hands tied from behind in an abandoned building at Khoirasol in Birbhum district. The body of another BJP worker, Tapan Khatua (45), was fished out from a pond at Egra in Purbo Medinipur district earlier in the day, the officer said. The BJP and the family of Khatua blamed the ruling party for his death, but the TMC leadership has rubbished the charges.
