An All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) worker was allegedly shot dead by unknown assailants in West Bengal's Bagnan town, on Monday, three days after a second BJP worker was allegedly killed in the state. Following the incident, the TMC has accused the BJP of the attack.
The worker, identified as Mahasin Khan, was on his way back home when he was shot late on Monday night, according to the police. Khan, 50, who had joined TMC two years ago, was earlier with Congress. His wife had recently won the panchayat polls.
