29, Apr 2019, 1:23 PM
BJP supporters had stopped the polling process but even as central forces were reinstated, the BJP supporters continued shouting slogans. TMC goons led by their leader Sujit Mukherjee reached the spot and allegedly attacked BJP supporters. They were even beaten with bamboo sticks. Police had to resort to lathi charge on both BJP and TMC supporters to bring the situation under control.
Tension prevails in the area after the incident. Large number of police have rushed to the spot led by the DCP. Voting which was stopped for more than two hours started post 9am in the presence of police.
