Biswas was shot dead on Saturday night. This incident happened when he had come to take part in a religious ceremony held in his constituency on Saturday night. After landing from the platform in the Saraswati puja program, the attackers shot bullets at him. He was admitted to a nearby hospital, but the doctors declared him dead.
According to the police, the attackers fired on him from point blank range. After the incident, a large number of police forces have been deployed to maintain law and order in the area. A few days ago Biswas was married. According to local people, he was a soft-spoken and friendly person. TMC has asked the police to take immediate action in the matter.
Since the assassination of the MLA, the Trinamool has become more aggressive with the BJP. The party says that the BJP is behind the incident. Trinamool leader Shankar Dutta has accused the BJP of the assassination of Biswas done under a conspiracy. Meanwhile, BJP President Dilip Ghosh has dismissed these accusations. He termed the murder as unfortunate. State Jail Minister Ujjwal Biswas has blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP for killing the TMC legislator.
