This isn't the first time violence erupted between TMC and BJP in Bengal. Last week a deadly clash between the two in Tamluk ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, claimed the life of a saffron party worker and injured one of TMC.

On Friday night, another TMC worker, identified as Sheikh Moibul died in Tamluk's Mahishadal as the party alleged BJP's hand. Moibul was taken to Basulia rural hospital in Mahishadal primarily and later he was referred to Tamluk District Hospital, where the TMC leader died. Denying the allegations, the BJP has claimed that the 42-year-old worker died as a result of internal clashes within the TMC camp.
