BJP leader Debendra Nath Roy has found hanging near his home in North Dinajpur district in West Bengal, says Police sources. 

"Ray was found hanging near a shop at Hemtabad area this (Monday) morning. We have started an investigation," a senior district police officer said.

Soon after news of Debendra Nath Roy death surfaced, West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhankhar tweeted, "Death of Debendra Nath Roy, Hemtabad MLA-Uttar Dinajpur District, raises serious issues including allegations of murder. Need for a thorough impartial probe to unravel the truth and blunt political violence."

Ray had contested and won the Hemtabad assembly segment -- a reserved seat for Scheduled Castes -- on a CPI(M) ticket but had switched over to the BJP last year after the Lok Sabha polls.
