KOLKATA: A fifty-year-old worker of Bharatiya Janata Party died after miscreants hurled crude bombs towards him in West Bengal's Birbhum district, police said on Sunday.
"Dalu Sheikh, 50, died due to a bomb injury on Saturday night," an officer of Labhpur police station said.
"The person is known to be a BJP worker. The reason of death can be ascertained after further investigation, " he said.
