Shukla, a close aide of Barrackpore MP Arjun Singh, was shot dead in Titagarh on October 4.

Singh claimed a free and fair probe into Shukla's killing will not be possible by an investigating agency of the West Bengal Police since the allegations are against the ruling TMC and said only a central agency can bring the "real culprits" to book.

Sabyasachi Dutta, a BJP leader from Bidhannagar area, was among those who participated in the 'hulla bol' march.

BJP members raised slogans against the ruling TMC government in the state and in support of CBI probe into the killing.

The Trinamool Congress had on October 13 organised a peace march in Titagarh, which was led by state cabinet minister Firhad Hakim and Lok Sabha MP Saugata Roy.
