Violence erupts in Bengal's Bhatpara, one dead

Kolkata, June 20 (TIWN) A man was killed as violence erupted in North 24 Parganas district's Bhatpara on Thursday following which police opened fire and deployed the Rapid Action Force amid the ongoing post-poll violence in West Bengal.

BJP MP Arjun Singh claimed that the victim was shot in the head, while six others also received bullet injuries.  None of the police officers including Barrackpore Police Commissioner Tanmay Roychowdhury could be contacted by IANS despite repeated efforts.  Some of the injured are reportedly in a very critical condition.  “My husband went out of the house on hearing about a disruption. He was hit by a bullet on his head,” the victim’s wife said.  On Thursday a new police station was to be inaugurated as per a directive of the state government.
