Congress, BJP and Left delegation is expected to visit the violence-hit Basirhat on Friday. Basirhat has been hit by violence and it remained tense on Thursday.
Fresh tension was reported in West Bengal’s Basirhat area on Thursday forcing the police to lob tear gas shells and resort to baton charge even as the state government decided to ban some organisations for allegedly instigating people.
“There may be some reports of small incidents, but the situation is under control,” a senior official at the state secretariat asserted.
“Fresh tension brewed up at Basirhat town and station area after the communal clashes in Baduria in the district. Police had to lob teargas shells and resort to baton charge to disperse an unruly crowd,” a senior police officer said.
