Kolkata: BJP leader, Manish Shukla, was shot dead about 20 km away from north Kolkata on Sunday evening, while talking with some locals and party workers near a local police station. Trinamool Congress is being blamed by BJP for the killing.

Though the Trinamool Congress refuted any charge of the killing and blamed the incident on internal clash within the BJP.

A 12-hour bandh has been called out by BJP in the Barrackpore area today.

West Bengal Governor, Jagdeep Dhankhar, condemned the incident through his tweet and summoned the DGP (Director general of police) and home secretary to the Raj Bhavan at 10 am.

Several men on motorcycles suddenly drove near Manish Shukla, who is a member of the BJP’s Barrackpore organizational district committee and a former councilor, and shot him in the head, chest and his back, according to the eyewitnesses.

First, he was rushed to a private hospital in Barrackpore and then Kolkata though he died.

BJP general Secretary, Kailash Vijayvargiya, blamed Chief Minister, Mamata Banerjee, for his death.

“We have no faith on the police. As the killing happened in front of the police station, there has to be some link. There should be a CBI probe into it. Arjun Singh had said earlier his life and those of his associates were in danger”, said Kailash.

“I regret Mamata Banerjee that you are resorting to such tactics. The people will never forgive you”, he added.

Police men rushed to the spot to calm the tensions that erupted with the BJP supporters heating up with the Barrackpore police commissioner, Manoj Verma, and additional commissioner, Ajay Thakur.
