“Two accused, Kartick Mondol and Sujit Mondol, have been arrested,” a senior police officer said.

According to locals, there was several “load shedding during the programme” and they smelt a conspiracy behind the outages.

The TMC and the BJP have been engaged in a bitter war of words since the killing.

While the TMC has alleged a BJP hand behind it, the latter has blamed the murder on the TMC’s internal feud.
