Kolkata: A BJP worker was killed and two more were injured as supporters clashed with TMC members at a rally in North Dinajpur district in Bengal on Saturday.

District BJP secretary, Sankar Chakraborty, said their activist Haren Singh (35) was killed after Trinamool Congress activists fired at them while they were holding a meeting at Chatragach. He succumbed to a bullet wound on his way to the hospital.

The BJP leader also claimed that two of their supporters were injured in the incident. He said they have been admitted to a hospital and are in a serious condition.

Trinamool Congress, however, denied the BJP allegations. Local TMC leader Hamidur Rehman instead alleged that BJP workers attacked the TMC activists when they were holding a meeting at Chatragach.

In order to bring the situation under control, cops and RAF have been rushed to the spot. However, news agency ANI reported that no official confirmation was made by the police yet. These clashes took place in the wake of the ongoing communal flare-up in Baduria and Basirhat in North 24 Parganas.
