The CBI, which was entrusted with probing into violent incidents following the publication of Assembly poll results in May, arrested four alleged BJP supporters from Cooch Behar district 
on Sunday early morning in connection with the murder of a Trinamul Congress worker. 

Sources said Shahinur Rahaman, a Trinamul worker in the Chilakhana area of Natabari Assembly constituency under Tufanganj police station of Cooch Behar, had gone missing from his home on May 4. The following day, his body was found in a nearby agricultural field.

After the incident, Trinamul had accused the BJP of murdering Rahaman. The BJP denied the charge then.

The arrested quartet are Ishwar Das, Ishwar Das (two persons with same name), Gobinda Das and Mihir Chanda. A court in Tufanganj remanded the four in judicial custody for 14 days.

Cooch Behar district BJP president Malati Rava has said the quartet was falsely implicated in the case. 

“After the polls, Trinamul workers indiscriminately attacked hundreds of our supporters who were even forced to leave their homes. We hope the CBI will act against all those involved in such attacks. As far as today’s arrests are concerned, we believe our supporters have been falsely framed in the case.”
