Barasat: Two persons were shot dead and another injured on Sunday when a group of gunmen stated to be backed by CPI-M attacked a blood donation camp organised by Congress and Trinamool Congress in North 24-Parganas district.

Bappa Chowdhury and Ranjit Roy died on the spot when the camp at Habra was attacked this afternoon, Additional Superintendent of Police Praveen Tripathy said.

Chowdhury and Roy were local Congress and Trinamool Congress leaders, police said.

Angry locals ransacked Habra Hospital where Bappa was declared brought dead and they set fire to a truck in the town market.

Congress and TC have called 24-hour Habra bandh tomorrow in protest against the killings and breakdown of law and order, sources said.
