West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar on Thursday expressed his shock at the brutal killing of a school teacher, who had recently joined the RSS, and his family members in Murshidabad district, and said the incident reflects the law and order situation of the state. Dhankhar said he has sought a report on the killing from the state government on an urgent basis.
A primary school teacher, his wife and 8-year-old son were hacked to death by "unidentified miscreants" inside their residence in West Bengal's Murshidabad district on Tuesday.
"I am shocked, distressed and pained at the inhuman brutal killing of a school teacher, his wife and his son in Murshidabad district. This is a critical reflection of the state of affairs and the law and order of West Bengal," Dhankhar told news agency PTI.
"I call upon the law enforcement agencies to pursue the culprits and bring them to book," he said.
The bodies of Bondhu Gopal Pal, a 35-year-old primary school teacher, his pregnant wife Beauty and son Angan were found lying in a pool of blood inside their residence at Jiaganj in Murshidabad district on Tuesday.
