BJP MLA Debendra Nath Ray from Hemtabad, North Dinajpur district of West Bengal, was found hanging in Bindal village near his village home on Monday. MLA's family members alleged that Ray has been killed and hanged later. His body has been sent for post-mortem examination.
Jitesh Chandra Rai, Ray's nephew demanded a CBI enquiry over this.
"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.
"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 & failure of law and order in the Mamta govt. People will not forgive such a govt in the future. We strongly condemn this," the National President of BJP Jagat Prakash Nadda tweeted.
