A Trinamool Congress worker, Joydeb Jana (30), was pounded the life out of purportedly by a group of Congress and CPI(M) supporters at Dubrajpur region in West Midnapore region which goes to elections on Monday, police said today.
Jana was attacked with sharp weapons, lathis and iron rods by a group of armed men allegedly belonging to Congress and CPI(M), when he was returning home last night, Police Superintendent B Chandrasekhar said. Jana was declared brought dead at the local hospital.
The ruling Trinamool Congress on Saturday blamed the CPI-M-Congress combine’s “bloody vendetta politics” for the “murder” of one of its workers in West Midnapore district of West Bengal.
“Our party worker Joydeb Jana was murdered in Sabang in West Midnapore following CPIM’s Mohammed Salim and Surjya Kanta Mishra’s call for vendetta politics and the combined threat from Congress and CPI-M,” Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee told the media.
