The body of an active BJP worker was found hanging from a tree under mysterious circumstances in Bengal's Purulia district on Thursday. The deceased has been identified as 22 year old Shishupal Shahis. Bengal has largely been dubbed as politically the most violent state and Purulia district had earlier seen similar incidents where BJP workers have been victimised. Shahis' death has created massive tension in the district in the wake of the Lok Sabha polls that are underway. The Trinamool tried to pass off Shahis' death as suicide but the BJP has called it a political murder.
