The incident took place on Friday night when Jana was returning back to his home on his motorbike after addressing an election campaign.
When he reached Purba Dubrajpur village, he was attacked by some unknown people.
Local villagers found him on the spot and took him to hospital where he was confirmed dead by doctors.
Jana's wife lodged an FIR with the Sabang police station against 22 people including former minister and Congress candidate for Sabang Assembly seat Manas Bhunia.
