West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind has said the “suspected suicide” by a BJP MLA in the state is being portrayed as a “political case” by the opposition BJP.

BJP MLA Debendra Nath Ray was found hanging outside a shop on Monday in North Dinajpur district, 454 km from Kolkata, triggering allegations from the BJP that he was killed. The West Bengal Police has said a suicide note was found in the politician’s pocket.

“…This is in the context of your meeting with a delegation of BJP who might have appraised you with some distorted fact,” Ms Banerjee said in the letter to President Kovind.

“His body was found on a hanging condition from a tin shed/verandah in front of a mobile shop which he used to visit to meet the local people. On receipt of post mortem and on primary investigation, West Bengal Police has reported that it is a case of suspected suicide and could be related to some local money transfer activities,” Ms Banerjee said in the letter.
