Nadia: A local BJP leader was shot by two miscreants in Nadia district on Friday, said the police.
Harala Debnath (55) was shot when he stepped out of his grocery shop after the day’s work.
Dr Manobendra Roy, BJP District President said, “Debnath was shot in the presence of his wife on Friday night. He was about to close his grocery shop on Friday, at around 10 pm, when two persons came to his shop to buy some snacks. Soon after Debnath gave them the packet of snacks and came outside, the two pulled out a revolver and shot him. I believe Trinamool Congress is involved in this matter.”
Debnath was soon rushed to a hospital but succumbed to death.
The BJP leaders staged a protest and urged the police to arrest the culprits.
