West Bengal violence: BJP, CPM, Congress delegations stopped from entering Basirhat
Angry men and women thronged Basirhat streets in search of Biswas
Even as the West Bengal government declared to ban some organisations for allegedly stoking mob violence in the state, fresh clashes have been reported from Basirhat late Thursday night.
Owing to the tensions, police lobbed tear gas shells and resorted to lathi charge at the irate mobs.
Sources said that the mob was angry as the police were only detaining Hindu youths and that they were only searching Hindu homes in Basirhat.
According to the locals, Trinamool Congress legislator Dibyendu Biswas pointed out that only Hindu homes were to be searched by police.
Angry men and women thronged Basirhat streets in search of Biswas. They searched cars and burnt tyres on the streets.
Meanwhile, on Friday both BJP and CPI (M) delegation were stopped from entering the riot-affected area.
While BJP delegation was stopped at Madhyamgram some 10 kilometers from Kolkata airport, CPI (M) workers who tried entering the region for the second time were stopped by security forces.
