West Bengal: BJP worker accuses police of stealing her husband's body

Kolkata: The widow of a BJP worker who died in a Kolkata hospital on Sunday night has accused the Bengal police of stealing her husband's body to prevent her from taking it to the party's headquarters in deference to his last wish, Hindustan Times reported.

Swarup Gorai was allegedly shot by ruling Trinamool Congress (TMC) supporters in Birbhum district last Friday. His body was later taken to N R S Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata for post mortem.

Complaints were lodged against hospital authorities and the police for taking the body to Birbhum and not informing Gorai's wife about the development.
