Violence flared up in Bengal again, in which two persons died and three were injured today. The location was Bhatpara, barely 30 km from Kolkata, which saw massive violence during the recent Lok Sabha election. It is not known what triggered the clash but locals said crude bombs were thrown and gunshots fired. The police used tear gas shells and, some according to some reports, also opened fire. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is already under Central pressure to maintain law and order in the state, has imposed prohibitory orders in the area that ban large gatherings. The BJP blamed the ruling Trinamool Congress for the violence and said they will send a report to Union Home Minister Amit Shah.
