Some locals informed the police after spotting his dead body.

West Bengal Police have registered a case in this regard.

BJP has claimed that this is the handiwork of the Mamata Banerjee's party TMC.

However, the TMC has rejected the BJP charge and denied any involvement of its party workers' in the case.

This is not the first time that a BJP worker has been murdered or found dead under mysterious circumstances in TMC-ruled Bengal.

The issue of political murderers in the state had led to clashes between the ruling TMC and BJP with both the sides accusing each other of targeting its workers for settling political scores.
