Agitation in Bengal over irregularities in Amphan relief

Published on :

Kolkata, July 3 (IANS) Hundreds of people staged a sit-in demonstration in West Bengal’s East Midnapore district on Friday to protest against the irregularities in the distribution of Amphan relief packages.

The incident took place in Pataspur town where people staged a sit-in, blocking the main road near Bajkul-Egra. The situation soon turned hostile and the police had to resort to baton charge to quell the crowd.

According to police sources, a huge contingent of force was called in to control the situation. “Two rounds were fired in the air to bring the situation under control,” a district police officer said.

He said the villagers were agitating over the irregularities in Amphan relief funds which reportedly went to various fake accounts, thus depriving those who were actually affected by the cyclone.
