Unidentified motorcycle-borne miscreants shot at BJP leader Manish Shukla at Titagarh in North 24 Parganas district, injuring him seriously on Sunday evening.
Shukla was taken to a local hospital and later shifted to a private hospital in Kolkata, where he succumbed to his injuries.
The miscreants pumped bullets on Shukla from point blank range.
