Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], June 23 (ANI): West Bengal BJP president Dilip Ghosh on Sunday demanded a CBI-led inquiry into the Bhatpara violence incident.
"We demand CBI inquiry into the incident in Bhatpara. Even the DG is not able to enter that place. Why is it taking so long?" Ghosh said.
Two people were killed while several others were injured on Thursday after clashes broke out between two groups suspected to be affiliated to ruling TMC and the BJP in Bhatpara, which comes under the Barrackpore Lok Sabha constituency.
Section 144 of the CrPC, which prohibits the assembly of more than four people, was implemented in the areas in order to restore order. Both TMC and BJP have blamed each other for the incident. (ANI)
