W Bengal BJP leader shot dead; party blames TMC

BJP leader Manish Shukla was shot dead on Sunday evening, about 20 km from north Kolkata, when he was speaking with some locals and party workers near a local police station. The BJP had called for a 12-hour bandh (shutdown) in the Barrackpore area yesterday, blaming the ruling Trinamool Congress for the killing. The Trinamool Congress has denied the charge and blamed the incident on an internal feud within the BJP. Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar, who condemned the incident in a late night tweet, has summoned the DGP (Director general of police) and home secretary to the Raj Bhavan at 10:00 am.
