Post-poll clash sparks tension in West Bengal district
Kolkata, May 1 (IANS) A clash broke out between Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) cadres and Congress activists Friday in West Bengal's North Dinajpur district and authorities imposed restrictions to prevent more violence in the region, police said.
'There was a small clash between two political parties in North Dinajpur district's Raiganj parliamentary constituency. No one has been injured in that clash,' state Inspector General (Law and Order) Raj Kanojia told IANS.
He said the situation was brought under control with the deployment of Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel in the area.
Following the unrest, the district Congress has called a 12-hour shutdown in North Dinajpur, alleging that CPI-M activists were trying to trigger post-poll violence in the area.
In a separate incident, a landmine went off at Dumurtor area of Bankura - one of the state's Maoist-affected districts.
Police sources said a CPI-M local committee leader of Bankura's Sanara block was injured in the landmine blast.
