Srinagar, Oct 05: A young BJP leader was shot dead by two bike-borne assailants when he was entering the party office off BT Road in Titagarh, West Bengal on Sunday evening.
Manish Shukla, a local councillor, was shot at by the duo on BT Road in the evening. He was immediately rushed to a private hospital where he was declared brought dead.
Shukla, who switched over to the saffron party last year, was considered to be close to Singh.
BJP alleged that Trinamool Congress-backed miscreants were involved in the shooting while Trinamool claimed the murder was a fallout of “severe infighting” in BJP ranks.
