TMC leader shot dead in Bengal

Kolkata: A Trinamool Congress leader was shot dead at a railway station in West Bengal’s Hoogly district on Saturday morning, police said.

The Trinamool Congress and the BJP traded charges against each other following the incident

Dilip Ram, a local Trinamool leader and the husband of a Trinamool Gram Panchayat Pradhan in the district, was allegedly shot in the head while he was waiting to catch a local train at Hoogly’s Bandel junction railway station at around 10 am.

Protesting against the killing of their leader, the state’s ruling party has called a 24-hour bandh in the district’s Chinsurah city on Sunday.

The deceased, a railway employee, was posted in North 24 Parganas district’s Naihati and used to travel to his workplace by train every day, his party sources said.

Following the incident, Ram was rushed to a local hospital. He was referred to a Kolkata hospital as his condition was critical but succumbed to his injury on the way, police said.

“Ram was shot at Bandel station today morning and later succumbed to his injuries on way to the hospital. We are investigating the incident. A case has been registered under the Bandel GRP while keeping the police commissioner’s office in the loop.. No one has been arrested yet. We are trying to locate the miscreants,” Chandannagar Police Commissioner Akhilesh Kumar Chaturvedi said.
