West Bengal Police have blamed, prima facie, the deaths of the two men the BJP says were party workers on suicide and personal enmity. 

Both deaths took place in Bengal's Purulia district. 

The first body, of 20-year-old Trilochan Mahto, was found hanging from a tree on Thursday. On the front and back of his white T-shirt was written: "This is for doing BJP politics from age 18. Been trying to kill you since the vote. Failed. Today you are dead."

The second body, of Dulal Kumar, was found hanging from an electric pole, on Saturday.  

"In preliminary investigation in first incident, it seems to be case of personal enmity. We've started investigating and we'll take proper action," said Purulia SP Joy Biswas. 

"Second incident seems to be case of suicide. Body sent for postmortem," he added. 




The BJP however has been quick to blame the murders on the Trinamool Congress.
