The West Bengal Crime Investigation Department (WBCID) on Saturday arrested Trinamool Congress leader Shrishthidhar Mahato’s son Sandip Mahato in connection with the murder case of BJP leader Trilochan Mahato.

BJP leader Trilochan Mahato’s body was recovered under mysterious circumstances, he was found hanging from a tree on May 30th.

The West Bengal CID also arrested another TMC worker Jagabandhu Mahato, besides arresting Sandip. With this arrest, a total of four TMC workers have been put behind bars.

A senior CID official while speaking to the media said, “We have arrested Sandip and Jagabandhu in connection with Trilochan Mahato's case. They were produced before the Purulia district court and were remanded to nine days of CID custody.”

The matter turned controversial when the police announced that it was a case of suicide even before the post mortem reports were out.

Three days after Mahato’s death another BJP leader Dulal Kumar was found hanging from an electric pole in Purulia district of West Bengal.
