Kolkata: Unidentified gunmen shot dead a Trinamool Congress worker this afternoon in the Kestopur area of the city's northern fringes.

Four men fired at Swapan Mondal who was standing in front of a club on VIP road in the area. A seriously wounded Mondal was taken to a private nursing home where he succumbed to his injuries, SP of North 24-Parganas district Champak Bhattacharya said.

Soon after the incident, Trinamool Congress activists and local people blockaded the road in protest.

Union Minister of State for Urban Development Sougata Roy and West Bengal Food Minister Jyotipriya Mullick visited the nursing home.

''This is not a political matter. The Trinamool Congress worker has been killed by anti-socials,'' Roy later told newsmen.
