Kalachand Karmakar, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) booth secretary from Sikarpur in Cooch Behar district of West Bengal died on Wednesday after being beaten up by members of a local club. A person identified as Kamal Barman has been arrested. 

The BJP and Karmakar’s family members have claimed that he was killed by Trinamool Congress (TMC) cadres. However, the police have said that it was a case of a dispute between two local clubs and not a political murder.
