Vikram Roy, Kochbihar: The politics of Bengal is in turmoil due to the shooting incident in Shitalkuchi. Trinamool alleges that the central forces are working at the behest of the BJP. The BJP’s counter-claim is that such an incident took place due to the provocation of the Trinamool leader. The whole incident was explained by CISFO. They claim that the miscreants attacked the central forces. The forces fired in self-defense.
Speaking at a press conference, Kochbihar Superintendent of Police Debashis Dhar said, “A young man was falling ill. At that time, some soldiers of the army were interrogating them. Just then rumors spread that the young man had fallen ill due to CISF. After that, about three hundred and fifty villagers, most of them women, surrounded the soldiers. Tensions spread. Attempts were made to snatch the weapon. Even, the situation of ballot snatching is created. Then the forces fired according to the rules. 15 rounds were fired. 4 people died. ” He added that several CISF jawans were also injured. The home guard was also injured.

The central forces tried to remove them with the help of the local police. A child fell into the rubble. After that they broke the CISF vehicle. The situation was brought under control by firing in the air. ” They added, “About an hour later, another 150 people surrounded the soldiers again. The forces fired two rounds in the air to remove them. The misdeeds were not suppressed. The forces continue to come forward. The forces then opened fire on the insane crowd in self-defense. ” However, some are claiming that there is a difference between the statements of the police and the central forces.
