4 Villagers protesting land acquisition shot dead in West Bengal
Kolkata TV, a Bengali news channel, showed footage of a bullet-riddled Bharat Mandal, a member of the newly formed Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (Committee to Resist Eviction from Land), lying dead.Along with him 3 other villagers were also killed.
Bharat was taken to a health centre in a rickshaw van but died on early Sunday.
"The CPI-M men raided us in police fatigues and killed him," a villager alleged.
"Bharat has two daughters and a son. I don't know what would happen to his family," the brother of Bharat Mandal said.
Local journalists claimed the attack was organised by the CPI-M men who started throwing bombs from across the river at Khejuri towards Nandigram.
Opposition parties have called for a 24-hour shutdown on Tuesday.
The Rapid Action Force (RAF) was deployed in Nandigram after the violence even as Left Front leaders demanded an immediate meeting of the Front to discuss the situation.
At least 22 mass organisations on Saturday formed a body to prevent any attempt by the West Bengal government to acquire land for a chemical hub and a special economic zone (SEZ) in Nandigram that saw violent protests against the proposal this week.
The Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (Committee to Resist Eviction from Land) was formed to prevent any move to acquire land for a proposed project by the Salim group of Indonesia and the state government even as CPI-M activists flexed their muscles and drew a battle line with the angry farmers and residents.
"We will not give any land for industrialisation here at any cost or price. We will teach the government a lesson if they use force," said a representative of the new body.
