A Marxist who joined the Trinamool Congress recently was shot dead and his wife allegedly raped at their residence at Sherkhanchowk on the Nandigram's border with Khejuri, a CPI(M) stronghold in East Midnapore district, police said.

Shankar Mondal was gunned down last night at around 1 am and his wife raped, Additional Superintendent of Police Chhoten Lama said.

He said both the Trinamool Congress and the CPI(M) claimed Mondal to be their supporter.

According to sources, Mondal's house was surrounded by CPI(M) cadre before both the incidents took place.
