Violence erupts at Nandigram

NANDIGRAM: Fresh violence erupted here on Friday as CPI (M) and Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee supporters exchanged fire and hurled bombs at Paharganj, an area between Nandigram Block-I and Khejuri.

East Midnapore Superintendent of Police G.A. Srinivas told PTI that both sides used country-made guns and bombs for an hour since noon at Paharganj. None was injured.

Order restored

The police intervened and restored order, he said, but tension was running high.

Fourteen people were killed in police firing at Nandigram on March 14, as people resisted the police from entering the villages.

Seven people were killed on January 7 after violence broke out on rumours that land would be acquired for an SEZ.

Government's assurance

The Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee Government has formally announced that the SEZ would not be set up in Nandigram and shifted elsewhere in the district. — PTI
