BJP MLA Debendra Nath Roy from Hemtabad, North Dinajpur district of West Bengal was found hanging in Bindal village near his village home on Monday (July 13) morning. Family members and villagers claim that it’s a murder
“Body of Shri Debendra Nath Ray, BJP MLA from Hemtabad, a reserved seat, in Uttar Dinajpur, was found hanging like this in Bindal, near his village home. People are of the clear opinion that he was first killed and then hung. His crime? He joined the BJP in 2019,” said West Bengal BJP in a tweet.
BJP president JP Nadda expressed shock over the incident and said, “The suspected heinous killing of Debendra Nath Ray, BJP MLA from Hemtabad in West Bengal, is extremely shocking and deplorable. This speaks of the Gunda Raj and failure of law and order in the Mamta government.”
In recent years, many of BJP and RSS members and leaders are found hanging and got killed in political rivalries. The death of the serving BJP MLA is adding more tensions to the feud.
