NANDIGRAM: One person was killed and two others were injured in sporadic clashes between supporters of ruling CPI-M and Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (BUPC), spearheading the movement against land acquisition, here today.

One person was shot dead and two others received bullet injuries during the clashes between CPI-M supporters and BUPC at Nandigram block-II, IGP (law and order) Raj Kanojia told reporters in Kolkata.

He said that tension prevailed in the area following the clashes. The injured were rushed to hospital.

Local police said that bombs were hurled and gunshots exchanged between CPI (M) and BUPC activists as clashes continued for the third consecutive day today at Nandigram.

They said that trouble began this morning when about 100-200 people from Khejuri tried to enter Nandigram in batches.

Gunshots were also heard from Bhangabera, Satingabari, Adhikaripara and Shimulkundu areas in Nandigram, the police said.

Trinamool Congress MLA Sisir Adhikari alleged that the CPI-M cadres were attacking people at Nandigram from Khejuri and creating a reign of terror.

The violence continued unabated despite Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee’s statement that the proposed chemical hub would not be located at Nandigram.
