Watch: BJP workers clash with police over death of party worker in West Bengal
BJP workers clashed with police in Howrah district of West Bengal on Thursday over the death of a party worker.
BJP workers were seen trying to scale the closed gates of the police station leading to a scuffle with the force personnel on duty.
The BJP had called a 12-hour bandh in Bagnan assembly constituency area against the killing of its worker Kinkar Majhi, who succumbed to his bullet injuries on Wednesday.
They were denied permission to hold a rally which led to the scuffle with the police.
Trouble began when BJP Yuva Morcha state president and Bishnupur MP Saumitra Khan went inside the Bagnan police station to talk to senior officers after the saffron party was denied permission to take out the rally.
BJP workers blocked roads and burnt tyres to register their protest against the killing.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Agriculture Minister Narendra Singh Tomar held deliberations over the farmers' protest against the three central farm laws with BJP president J P Nadda here late on Sunday evening. Shah has already appealed to the protesting farmers to shift to the Burari ground in the national capital to stage their protests and said the Centre was ready to hold discussions with them as soon as they move to the designated place. Meanwhile, farmers had earlier rejected Centre's proposal to move the protest to Burari ground. Farmers said the Burari ground is an "open jail". Watch the full video for more details.
