But the efforts went in vain when the victim succumbed to his injuries on Monday morning, triggering a war of words between the district leaders of Trinamool Congress and BJP. Birbhum district president of Trinamool Congress, Anubarat Mondal trained his gun at BJP saying a conspiracy was hatched by them to kill Ghosh as he had been instrumental in strengthening their party’s organisation in the district.

They fired five bullets at him yesterday. He had been attacked by the BJP workers before but managed to survive,” Mondal said. Senior Trinamool Congress leader Firhad Hakim, who is also in charge of the party in the district, reacted sharply to the incident stating that RSS and BJP together are getting criminals into the state from Jharkhand with an intention to eliminate our party leaders. The BJP believes in violence. As they are unable to gain political ground in the state, they are trying to unleash violence. People in Bengal will give a befitting reply to them, Hakim maintained. The district BJP leaders have, however, denied the allegation and termed the incident a result of an intra-party clash within Trinamool Congress. It may be mentioned that Ghosh was returning home on a motorcycle on Sunday afternoon when some miscreants blocked his way and shot at him from a close quarter. Three bullets pierced his body and the victim fell on the ground. Alerted by the sound of gun shots, locals rushed to his rescue. The miscreants who reportedly came on motorcycles fled the spot immediately after the incident. After being informed police reached the spot and started a probe in this regard. Police are conducting raids to nab the culprits. It may be stated that Ghosh was attacked earlier as well by some miscreants.last_img
