BJP team blames govt. for Asansol riots

Case registered against BJP's Babul Supriyo on charges of disrupting public order

Mr Tripathi also interacted with the people affected in the violence. "I appeal to all the people belonging to all castes and communities to live in harmony", Tripathi told reporters here. "I had a meeting with officials over the situation". He, however, did not stop at any minority affected areas during his visit.

A person was allegedly hacked to death while a Deputy Commissioner of Police lost a hand after getting hit by a bomb during the clash between two groups centring on a Ram Navami procession organised by the sangh affiliates in Raniganj on Monday.

The Mamata Banerjee government had on Saturday said it would not allow the BJP team to visit the coal towns of Asansol and Raniganj as prohibitory orders under section 144, CrPC were in force in the riot-hit towns. Trinamool Congress secretary general Partha Chatterjee however claimed, "Only the Governor can explain why he could not visit the places earlier".

The BJP leaders, however stuck to their plans and proceeded to Asansol.

"People will question the governor about his visit to selected areas. I dont want to discuss it here".

James about to surpass Jordan's record
It's not like I go into every game saying, 'OK, I've got to get 10 points.' It's just kind of organic. LeBron James doesn't go into every game thinking he needs to score 10 points.

A four-member committee formed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah is scheduled to visit the trouble hit areas on Sunday and submit a report. Earlier this week, the Governor's visit was stalled as the state government advised him against visiting Asansol and Raniganj, citing security reasons. "This is absolutely logical", a senior official at the state government said.

Police accused the BJP delegation of violating the prohibitory orders and said legal action would be taken against them.

The Imam of Noorani Masjid, Imdatullah Rashidi, had said that his son was also killed in the violence, but there was no confirmation from the police on the incident.

Amidst the violence, the Asansol constituency's MP Babul Supriyo attempted to visit the strained district on Thursday but was stopped from entering resulting in a scuffle between the former playback singer Supriyo and police forces.

According to a senior police officer privy to the development, apart from the traditional posting of DIB (District Intelligence Branch) officer in each police districts, the local civic volunteers of the police will also be used to collect information.
