Four companies of central paramilitary forces were rushed to Basirhat’s Baduria and its adjoining areas on Tuesday evening in wake of the violence due to communal clashes there.
Internet services were also disrupted in Baduria in North 24 Parganas on Wednesday following communal violence.
Besides a Rapid Action Force (RAF) team of the Kolkata Police, another contingent of force of the Howrah City Police led by its police commissioner DP Singh have also been deployed in the violence-hit areas.
Riot erupted in the area close to the Indo-Bangla border after a youth, Sourav Sarkar from Rudrapur, allegedly uploaded an inflammatory post on his Facebook account which went viral and hurt the sentiment of a minority community on Sunday leading to a clash.
Although Sourav fled at night, he was later arrested by the police from a paddy field on Monday morning. The accused has been remanded by the Basirhat Sub-Division Court in the police custody for four days.
But the jihadi mob continued as many roads were blocked and several houses were torched by the demonstrators. On Tuesday afternoon when Superintendent of Police (North 24 Parganas) Bhaskar Mukherjee visited Jadurhati, he came under attack as well.
