New Delhi: In an instance of intra-party election rivalry coming to the fore, a BJP activist was allegedly stabbed to death in North Delhi by his own party’s councillor.
Reports said Jai Prakash was allegedly murdered by Madhav Prasad, a sitting BJP councillor, in Model Town on Tuesday night following a heated argument.
Prakash was rushed to a hospital but he succumbed to his injuries this morning.
Prasad is seeking re-election from ward number 71, Sangam Park in the upcoming MCD polls.
