Tensions flared in Nandigram, West Bengal, as violence erupted, leaving a female BJP worker dead and seven others injured, just days before the sixth phase of the Lok Sabha elections.

In response, BJP supporters took to the streets, setting shops ablaze and blocking roads with obstacles, prompting increased security measures, including the deployment of Rapid Action Force and central forces alongside local police.

Despite the heightened security, no arrests have been reported so far, leaving the situation tense.

The incident has sparked a political blame game, with the BJP accusing the TMC of orchestrating the attack, while the ruling party denies the allegations, citing internal conflicts within the local BJP ranks.
