BJP spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain termed the incident as an example of Bengal's jungle raj and asked the Election Commission to take cognisance of the matter.

"There is jungle raj in Bengal, the Election Commission should take cognizance of this incident. There is no rule of law in Bengal, BJP workers are continuously getting killed there. Is the Trinamool Congress a political party or a murderous organisation? This is really unfortunate. The people of Bengal will answer this with their votes," he said.

"Mamata Banerjee thinks she is is the absolute authority in Bengal after becoming chief minister. The people make the chief minister and dispose of the chief minister from the seat. The people of Bengal will teach a lesson to Mamata Banerjee in the Lok Sabha election, and she will not become the chief minister after the Assembly elections in Bengal," he added.

The incident took place a day after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's mega rally in north Bengal's Siliguri.

West Bengal will see polling in all seven phases of the Lok Sabha elections, beginning 11 April.
