The body of Purnachandra Das (44), a booth president of BJP in the Ramnagar area of the south Bengal district, was found hanging from a tree by locals, police said.
During the clash, party’s district secretary Pabitra Das was seen slumping on the road and as other BJP supporters reached him, they spotted blood oozing out of his wound, said the police.
The incident happened around 10 pm Friday when Sujoy Ghosh, a resident of Barbetia in Kharagpur Rural police station area, was trying to board the Kharagpur-Asansol passenger from platform number 1.
The Prime Minister later visited the victims at the Midnapore Medical College and Hospital. Many of the injured are women and are unconscious.
The Prime Minister added that people of Bengal were waiting to remove shackles, an indirect reference to the 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
