The Trinamool Congress delegation also met President of India Ram Nath Kovind to counter BJP’s claim as a political move.
In the latest clash between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Trinamool Congress (TMC), the former held the latter responsible for the death of BJP leader Debendra Nath Roy in West Bengal. President Ram Nath Kovind has met with back to back delegations of BJP and TMC in the last two days. The BJP has claimed that 105 members have been victims of political killings by the TMC till date and demanded for strict action against the government. TMC MP Derek O Brien, meanwhile presented a letter by West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, calling this an attempt by BJP to politicise a suicide as a murder.
The mysterious death of Roy on July 13, who was found hanging from the tin roof of his mobile shop in Bengal’S Hemtabad district, has been called as a ‘prima facie’ case of suicide, by the state police. His family however, calls this a murder. Roy was the Secretary of a mini bank since 2012. Ongoing investigations show some unaccounted withdrawal of funds of almost two crores.
The police found two notes with two names, from the pocket of the deceased leader. Niloy Singh, whose name was mentioned in it, has been arrested by the police.
