In a shocking incident of a political murder, a 20-year-old guy named Trilochan Mahato was found hanging from a tree. Trilochan, an active worker of the saffron party was a resident of West Bengal’s Purulia district.

On Tuesday, Trilochan called his brother panicking and said that he was kidnapped and urged his brother to rescue him. Immediately, his brother informed the police and the police got into action and searched for Trilochan. Unfortunately, even after finding the entire night they did not get any trace of the guy kidnapped.

It was on Wednesday morning that his body was found hanging from a tree branch with a note stuck on his back. “Joining the BJP party at the age of 18 has cost you your life. Tried to kill you on the election day itself but couldn’t succeed. But, today your life ends,” reads the roughly handwritten note in Bengali.


Reacting to this heartbreaking incident BJP worker, party president Amit Shah tweeted; “Deeply hurt by the brutal killing of our young karyakarta, Trilochan Mahato in Balarampur, West Bengal. A young life full of possibilities was brutally taken out under state’s patronage. He was hanged on a tree just because his ideology differed from that of state-sponsored goons.” “The present TMC govt in West Bengal has surpassed the violent legacy of Communist rule. Entire BJP mourns this tragic loss and stands firmly with Trilochan Mahato’s family in this hour of grief. His sacrifice for organization and ideology will not go in vain. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti,” he added.

BJP union minister and Asansol MP Babul Supriyo brought up a comparison between West Bengal’s Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and German dictator Adolf Hitler. “Probably the last thing that 18 yr old Trilochan Mahato from Purulia read was,”You are an 18 yr old BJP worker. Today is ur last day.”The danger 2 democracy has thickened manifold due to the violence caused by TMC goons who won’t even spare an innocent teenager. #BengalBrutality,” he wrote in his tweet.

BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha accused the TMC party of the murder and stated that it was an outcome of their insecurity after the BJP party did well in the panchayat elections. He also demanded a CBI inquiry.

The father of the dead guy lodged a police complaint and alleged six men who had previously threatened to kill Trilochan. The number of murders that are happening in Bengal over political differences is shameful for any country which is democratic. We hope the govt takes action against the culprits and the family gets justice.
