Union Home Ministry seeks report on BJP's youth leader in Kolkata


The Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Friday informed the Union Home Ministry has sought a report on the death of a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) youth wing worker who was found dead in a deserted building under mysterious circumstances in Kolkata’s Kashipur earlier in the day. 

As per media reports, the Home Minister said, “Union home ministry has taken cognizance of the incident and has sought a report from the West Bengal government.”

Amit Shah visited the family of the deceased. The Home Minister is on his two day visit to Kolkata. As soon as the news of the BJP’s activist broke out, the Union Minister cancelled all the welcome ceremonies. 

The Union Minister on Friday met the family of dead Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader in Kolkata. He termed the incident as a ‘political murder’ where he also demanded for a CBI probe.

“Arjun Chowrasia, 27, BJYM Mondal Vice-President, North Kolkata was brutally slaughtered and hanged. This continuous slaying of opponent political workers highlights the demise of democracy in West Bengal. 57 BJP workers were massacred in the last year. Humanity is smothered by the TMC!,” the West Bengal unit of the BJP said in a tweet. 

BJYM worker was found hanging in Ghosh Bagan area inside a desserted building. 

Another tweet informed, “The death and murder of our committed karyakarta Arjun Chowrasia (27), resident of Kashipur Assembly, is deeply distressing. In view of the unfortunate killing, all celebrations to welcome Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah in Kolkata stand cancelled.”

BJP Vice-President Dilip Ghosh said, “This (BJYM worker’s murder) is a pre-planned strategy to disturb and threaten our workers. Our worker Abhijit was killed on May 2 last year and 60 murders took place since then. Nobody has been punished, no chargesheet has been filed…It can’t be solved without CBI.”

Meanwhile, Atin Ghosh, TMC MLA from Kashipur reacted to the incident where a number of people were barring the cops to recover the body for further investigation. He said, “When an unnatural death occurs, Police takes body for investigation and postmortem. It’s a natural course of action. They have obstructed it with their bad intention of dirty politics. They’ve come from outside. So, we are strongly condemning it.”  

Notably, this is Shah’s first visit to West Bengal after BJP lost the State Assembly polls in 2021.
