Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], July 13 (ANI): BJP leader Rahul Sinha on Monday demanded a CBI inquiry into the death of the party's MLA from Hemtabad, Debendra Nath Roy, whose body was found hanging in front of his residence.
"We demand a CBI inquiry into the killing of BJP MLA from Hemtabad, Debendra Nath Ray. Trinamool Congress is behind this killing and has made it look like a suicide. I request the West Bengal CM to order a CBI inquiry to find the truth behind the killing," said Rahul Sinha
"Today morning the BJP MLA from Hemantabad in Uttar Dinajpur district was murdered. This is a pre-planned conspiracy and the Trinamool Congress (TMC) is involved and behind this murder. They tried to pass it as a suicide as they have done earlier too," he said.
