Sajijul Haq, a local TMC leader, alleged Biswas was murdered due to a fall out between different factions of the ruling TMC. Haq raised serious allegations against TMC MP Abu Taher Khan, who represents Karimpur constituency, accusing him of having a role to play in Biswas’s murder and demanded the immediate arrest of the accused persons.

Haq said Taher Khan’s nephew Habib was allegedly involved in Biswas’s murder. “Tension was going on for several days. Police knowingly did not take any action. I would like to request our leader Mamata Banerjee to remove Habib from the party, as he is the main perpetrator of the crime,” he said.

Taher Khan refuted the allegations raised against him and said police have launched an investigation into the case.

Incidents of gunfights between different factions of the TMC have increased in the wake of the panchayat elections that are scheduled to be held next year.

On November 21, a police constable sustained a bullet injury while trying to stop clashes between two factions of the TMC in Basirhat in West Bengal’s North 24 Paraganas district.
