KOLKATA: The spate of political killings refuses to end in West Bengal as a BJP worker was stabbed to death in West Burdwan district on Thursday, police said. Sushil Mondal, 49, was allegedly killed by a Trinamool worker after an altercation over putting up BJP flags at Panduk village under Ketugram police station. Local Trinamool leaders, however, claimed Mondal was a victim of the party’s internal feud.
