A small town, Dhulagarh in West Bengal has been under panic since Dec 13, following violent clashes broke between two communities.

Interestingly, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee, has not spoken even a single word about the incident. Though the incident has not reported by media houses but Banerjee, has hogged the media after she initiated a campaign against PM Modi for his decision to demotise high value currency notes.

Tension erupted in Dhulagarh when two groups reportedly clashed as a procession was brought out in the area last week. On 13 December, clashes between two communities erupted following the Milad-ul-Nabi celebrations in Dhulagarh.

As per reports, an angry mob started the violence after they weren’t allowed to carry out a procession of Milad-ul-Nabi celebrations in the area.

Local residents claim that they had to flee with their children and elderly as soon as the mob hurled country-made bombs at their houses. Later, the mob allegedly looted the houses and fled with the money and jewellery, later setting it on fire.

As per a senior officer at the Howrah Commissionerate, police had to use tear gas to bring the situation under control when the groups hurled bombs at each other.

65 people have been arrested for the violence and the state governor has summoned the state DGP to take stock of the situation.

West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi yesterday enquired from the state Director General of Police Surajit Kar Purakayastha about the law and order situation there.

According to information received from the Governor’s residence, Purakayastha briefed Tripathi on the matter.

“The governor asked the DGP to ensure peace and law and order in the area and to take strict action against the culprits,” a release issued by the Raj Bhavan said.
