KOLKATA: At least four persons were reportedly killed in a clash between Trinamool Congress and BJP
workers in Sandeshkhali, North 24 Parganas, on Saturday as postpoll violence continued to rock West Bengal
more than a fortnight after results of the Lok Sabh elections have been declared.
While police confirmed three deaths, two from BJP and one from TMC
, BJP leaders named three partymen who had died in the clash.
State BJP has sent a report of the Sandeshkhali violence to home minister Amit Shah.
The confrontation between BJP and TMC workers at Nyajat began on Saturday morning over removal of party flags. Trinamool leader and state food minister Jyotipriyo Mullick said party worker Qayum Mollah was later attacked while he was attending a party meeting at Hatgachhi. “He was first shot from pointblank range and then stabbed,” Mullick said.
