One person was killed when supporters of two political parties clashed in North Dinajpur district, police said. The clashes took place at Chatragach under Chopra police station of the district.

Sankar Chakraborty, North Dinajpur district BJP secretary claimed that one of their supporters named Bijoy Singh was killed when alleged Trinamool Congress activists fired at them while they were holding a meeting at Chatragach.

The BJP leader also claimed that four of their supporters were injured in the incident and admitted to Chopra Health centre in serious condition.
