Nandigram tense after fresh clashes


Nandigram/ Kolkata : Nandigram in West Bengal remained tense Friday after fresh clashes broke out Thursday between the supporters of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and the Trinamool Congress backed Bhumi Uchched Pratirodh Committee (BUPC).

There were reports of guns being used and hurling of crude bombs from Nandigram's Tekhali bridge area Thursday but no one was injured, East Midnapore Superintendent of Police G.A. Srinivas told IANS over phone from Nandigram.

"The situation since this morning is peaceful and we have recovered the two Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) men abducted by the rival group," Srinivas said.

Even though the proposed SEZ in the area was scrapped after violence claimed nearly 21 lives there, the CPI-M and BUPC cadres have been clashing against each other.
