Kolkata: Politics has intensified over the death of BJP worker Alan Roy in a clash between protesters and police in Siliguri. Senior Minister of State Subrata Mukherjee said that Roy has been shot dead by BJP workers only. In fact, today the West Bengal Police has tweeted and claimed that Allan Roy has been shot and killed by shotgun and this gun is not used by the state police.
As per the PM report “death was due to the effects of shotgun injuries.” Police do not use shotguns. It’s obvious that during yesterday’s protest in Siliguri, armed persons were brought and they fired from firearms. (1/3)

Alan Roy’s death not due to police firing
Sometime later, in a press conference, Subroto Mukherjee said that the BJP is trying to create a problem through riots in the state. He said that Aan Roy’s death during the protest was not caused by police firing. The government is investigating the case.
He said, ‘The police have not fired. The report that we have received from the police today states that, according to the post mortem report, the man died of a gunshot wound and the state police do not use shotgun.’
Subroto Mukherjee claimed that during the protests at the state secretariat in North Bengal, some people fired at protesters and aimed to intimidate the police. Alan Roy, who was injured in the skirmish, was later killed by a shotgun. No one is murdered with such a shotgun unless bullets are fired at a close distance.
BJP is mad in power’s greed
Subroto Mukherjee said that CPM had earlier politicized this death. But usually, the right-wing political party does not do this. But today I saw that the BJP has gone mad in the greed of power. The strength of West Bengal appears to be more than the that of Delhi.
Meanwhile, Subroto Mukherjee said that the police report stated that the deceased also had a shotgun. He said “We are saddened by the death of a person. He also said that the protest was aimed at inciting the police to fire. But despite thousands of attempts to provoke, the police have not fired. He said that the police acted patiently. Police were beaten with sticks and batons but did not use firearms.
BJP state general secretary Seiyantan Basu claimed that the report is proving our allegations that the police were using firearms and they shot Alan.
‘The allegations leveled against us are ridiculous. Alan was shot in the chest as they walked down the aisle. If someone had shot him in the procession, he would have been shot in the back’, he added.
