In yet another case of lawlessness, a BJP leader was shot dead today in Bihar's Danapur district.
The BJP leader was identified as Ashok Jaiswal. Reportedly, he was shot dead by unknown armed assailants.
Angry over the murder of Ashok Jaiswal, BJP has called for a shutdown in Danapur on 18 August.
Jaiswal is the second BJP leader from Bihar to have been shot dead in the past couple of months. Earlier in February, Bihar Vice-President for Bharatiya Janata Party, Visheshwar Ojha, was shot dead in Arrah city of Bhojpur district in Bihar.
