The Tripura unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party has alleged that a person who died on Sunday allegedly due to injuries suffered a day earlier was a victim of attack by opposition parties in the state.
“ The opposition parties triggered violence in the state after Lok Sabha polls results were announced. Two of our party activists were killed in the violence. We suspect CPI(M) cadres committed the crime,” said BJP spokesperson Nabendu Bhattacharya.
The Communist Party of India (Marxist), or the CPI(M), denied the allegation. “ Many of our supporters have been attacked. No arrest has been made yet ,” said CPI(M) leader Bijan Dhar.
