A 35-year-old TMC worker was shot dead in his house in West Bengal’s North 24 Parganas district on Saturday (January 23) evening.
The name of the deceased is Rumani Khan. He was a resident of Gwalapur in Barrackpore’s Number 18 ward. The incident caused a stir in the area.
According to sources, the attackers were keeping an eye on Rumani’s house. As soon as, Rumani’s daughter Karishma stepped out of the house, they barged in and shot him.
The TMC worker who was a close aide of a former Trinamool Congress councillor, was fired twice. Rumani Khan was taken to the hospital immediately after the attack. However, he was declared dead on arrival by the doctors.
Following the murder, local TMC leaders reached Khan’s house and urged the police for a thorough investigation.
The police said they had already started inquiries, and were examining CCTV footage to track the killers. So far, no one has been arrested.
