"Mamata Banerjee is the perpetrator of the crime and incites violence," he said.

The body of BJP party worker Kashinath Ghosh was taken out from a canal in Hooghly on Sunday, said police.

"It is a planned murder I want the murderer to get heavy punishment and if possible, the murderer should be hanged," Ghosh's wife alleged.
