New Delhi: Violence seems to have no end in Bengal with another BJP cadre being killed in the state allegedly by TMC. The deceased has been identified as Chandan Shaw.
The incident has been reported from Bhatpara area that falls under Barrackpore Lok Sabha constituency. BJP 's Arjun Singh won from Barrackpore defeating former rail Minister Dinesh Trivedi. Bhatpara went for an assembly by-election where Singh's son contested on behalf of the BJP and won. The area has seen large scale violence in the run-up to the Election and even after that.

Just days before, another 22-year-old BJP worker was shot dead allegedly by the ruling Trinamool Congress cadre in the state. The incident occurred in Chakdah area of Bengal.
What's significant is just days ago Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee vowed revenge. Mamata had threatened during the election campaigning, "I will remember everything. The atrocities and humiliations heaped on my state, and it will not go unpunished. I have all the records and documents with me. I will take revenge for what is being done to me inch by inch. All those who are perpetrating the offence should remember this".
