KOLKATA: Angry women on Friday demonstrated against TMC national secretary and MP Mukul Roy and went to the village of Sourav Chowdhury, a young BJP worker who was  murdered, a week ago in North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal.

Meanwhile, another BJP worker, Biswanath Das, was lynched at Haroa on Friday, allegedly by the TMC goons. Politics over Sourav, a 22-year-old student, who was allegedly killed by a local mafia don at Bamangachhi, continued as the TMC leaders held a meeting at the village, and kept claiming that he was a member of their Students’ Wing.

Roy had reached the village through a different route, riding the pillion of a motorcycle, and wearing a helmet. As the women in the village identified him, they protested  demanding why he had come a week after the murder, and that too, after the main accused, Shyamal Karmakar, a TMC “sponsored goon”, was arrested.

In his third attempt, Roy could reach the doors of Chowdhury household and Sourav’s brother pacified the women protesters. Later, at a public meeting, Roy heaped praises on the police, who he claimed had arrested all the culprits.

Three State Ministers, Jyotipriya Mullick, Bratya Basu, and Chandrima Bhattacharya, tried their best to control the damage by flaunting photographs of Sourav, as the BJP had led in the area during the Lok Sabha polls.

Meanwhile, a BJP worker Bishwanath Das was killed  on Friday at Haroa in the same district, allegedly by “TMC goons”. Bhattacharya claimed the BJP workers were being targeted in areas where the party led during the general elections, and more youths were joining the BJP.
