A bomb hurled at a Trinamool Congress (TMC) worker’s house killed three people on Friday night.
The deceased were identified as 19-year-old Sohel Rana and 55-year-old Khairuddin Sheikh. The incident took place under Domkol police station in Murshidabad, West Bengal.
Speaking to ANI news agency, deceased Khairuddin Sheikh’s son accused the Congress supporters behind the attack and said, “We were sleeping, suddenly our house was bombed. They shot my father.”
He claimed that his uncle, Altaf Hossain, was also killed a few days ago. Sohel Rana is son of Altaf Hossain. Several people are said to have injured in the clashes.
Another relative of the deceased told The New Indian Express that the accused were convicts in another murder case. “They were after me as I am one of the witnesses. Yesterday, they came here and killed my uncle and nephew after they could not find me in the house,” said a relative of the deceased persons.
Police said raids were on in the area but no arrests had been made so far.
More details are awaited.
