Kolkata, June 12 (TIWN) Hundreds of BJP activists on Wednesday marched towards Lalbazar, the Kolkata Police headquarters, only to be stunted midway by the police force who fired water cannons and lobbed tear gas shells to disperse the mob.

Amid heightened security arrangements, the saffron party workers, led by leaders like BJP National General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya, state party chief Dilip Ghosh, MP S.S. Ahluwalia and Mukul Roy, started the 'mega condemnation march' to Lalbazar. Th protest was against the alleged killing of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) workers and breakdown of the law and order situation in the state. The agitators started the rally from central Kolkata's Subodh Mullick Square and broke a barricade at Ganesh Chandra Avenue, close to 200 meters from entry gate of Lalbazar. The police fired two water cannons to disperse them.
