Amit Shah demands CBI probe into BJP worker's death, meets family

The body of Arjun Chowrasia, a BJP Yuva Morcha leader of the Kashipur area, was found hanging inside an abandoned building in Ghosh Bagan area, police said.

Home Minister Amit Shah, who is on a 2-day visit to West Bengal, visited the family of the BJP worker who was found dead in Kolkata on Friday morning.

He accused the TMC of political murder and said that the BJP wants a CBI inquiry into the BJP worker's death.

The Home Ministry has taken cognisance of the matter and sought a report from the West Bengal govt

“Yesterday TMC celebrated one year of its third term in office and now we have this case of Chowrasia being `killed’,” the home minister said to reporters after meeting the worker’s family members.

He also added “Union home ministry is taking serious note of Chowrasia's death and has sought a report on it.” The home minister also said Chowrasia’s family had complained that his body had been taken away forcibly.

The body of Arjun Chowrasia, a BJP Yuva Morcha leader of the Kashipur area, was found hanging inside an abandoned building in Ghosh Bagan area, police said.

The TMC has denied the charges by BJP and said that Chowrasia died because of the infighting within the party.
