Manoj Nageshia was attacked when he was dining with his friend in his house on Friday night.

While the victim was being taken to a nearby hospital, he succumbed.

In the last Assembly poll, Nageshia, who was the treasurer of Jharkhand BJP committee (ST/SC cell), had contested unsuccessfully.

Earlier he was a Maoist, but had returned to the mainstream after he was released from jail.

Jharkhand chief minister Raghubar Das expressed shock and directed the director general of police to initiate prompt action to apprehend the culprit.
