BJP's Tripura unit Treasurer Shyamal Roy was run over by a speeding local train near Bally station in Howrah district today, party's West Bengal unit president Rahul Sinha said.
He said 42-year-old Roy was part of an 11-member BJP team which was going to attend the party's National Council meeting at Indore, beginning from February 17.
Sinha said on arrival at the NSCBI airport here from Agartala, the team members came to Bally station to take the train to Indore.
The BJP leader, he said, slipped from the train and was run over and killed.
After post mortem, the body would be sent to Agartala by the team-members who cancelled their Indore visit.
