The actual cause of death has not been ascertained. Police are probing the mysterious death.
Reportedly, three days before the first phase of the state election, on March 25, a BJP Mandal president, Amit Sarkar, was found hanging in a veterinary hospital premises Dinhata Cooch Behar. The incident sparked violence after BJP supporters vandalized TMC party offices, alleging that TMC goons were behind the killing. TMC denied BJP's allegations and asked for an inquiry into the matter.
Indian Express quoted a police official who said that the body had been sent for post mortem. The actual cause of death can only be ascertained after an autopsy report becomes available. Hence we mark the claim as unverifiable.
