Political disturbances continue in the State of West Bengal as two groups believed to be affiliated to Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and All India Trinamool Congress (TMC) got involved in a tussle in Bhatpara. Both sides pelted stones and crude country-made bombs at each other. The Police, forced by the circumstances, baton charged the people and fired shots in the air to take control over the situation. However, two people of BJP got killed by bullet shots, and 11 others were injured. After the clashes, an order under Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 had been imposed in that area. A BJP delegation led by former Union Minister, S.S. Ahluwalia along with two newly elected MPs Satyapal Singh and B.D. Ram visited trouble-hit Bhatpara to meet the families of the two deceased, and access the situation in Bhatpara. The delegation will submit a detailed report on the ground reality to the Union Minister of Home Affairs who is concerned about the violence and loss of lives in the area. The BJP leadership had also sought a CBI probe into the matter. It had also demanded a State-wide protest and demonstration against the killings on Friday.
