Centre seeks Bengal poll violence report again

New Delhi, May 16: The Central government on Wednesday again sought a report from the West Bengal government over the violence during panchayat elections in the state earlier this week that left at least 10 dead. “The Ministry of Home Affairs has sought a detailed report from the West Bengal government in view of the violence during panchayat elections,” a senior Home Ministry official said. More than 50 people were also injured on Monday in the violence during the three-tier Panchayati Raj institutions’ elections in West Bengal. The Ministry sought the report again after the West Bengal government submitted a “sketchy” report on Tuesday in response to its first query sent on Monday. (IANS)
