One Arrested For Sharing Fake Image Of West Bengal Violence

One Arrested For Sharing Fake Image Of West Bengal Violence

She also said that the fact that forces were not sent on time further flared up violence around the West Bengal border.

Kolkata: As the communal clashes in North 24 Paraganas district of West Bengal, that broke out over an objectionable Facebook post, refuse to die down even after days, the Centre on Saturday sent four Border Security Force (BSF) companies to violence-hit areas to assist the state police in containing the communal outbreak.

Violence flared on Monday in Baduria and Basirhat and spread to other towns in the North 24 Parganas district after a Facebook post by a 17-year-old about Prophet Mohammad angered Muslims.

He was arrested, and in the ensuing violence mobs attacked shops and houses, torched vehicles, including those of the police, and put up road blockades.

Banerjee appealed for restoration of peace in Darjeeling and said the state government was open to dialogue. Regarding her party's stand on the July 17 presidential poll, Banerjee said, "We will support the Congress nominees both in the presidential and vice-presidential elections". "Once again I am saying, it is the ploy of the BJP to disturb the peace of the state". "We have chose to order a judicial probe into the Baduria and Basirhat riots". We have blacklisted two organisations. "Jis prakar Kashmir se Hinduo ko bhagaya gaya usi prakar Bengal se Hinduo ko bhaga ke Bangladesh jaisa rajya ye log bana denge (the way Hindus were asked t leave Kashmir, they will be made to do the same in Bengal and it will be converted into a state like Bangladesh)", he added.

She congratulated the people of Baduria and Basirhat for "not falling into the BJP's trap, in spite of provocations".

Mamata also claimed that whether it was Puducherry, Kerala or West Bengal, those who spoke up against the Centre were being "unfairly targeted as political vendetta". "The law will take its own course", she said, while addressing a press conference here.

She, however, praised the Bengal media and a section of the national media for desisting from spreading rumours.
