Security beefed up in Singur after eruption of fresh violence

Around 200 farmers today gathered at the proposed Tata companys car factory project site in Singur demanding their acquired land back that led to fresh incidents of violence in the area.

Hooghly/ Kolkata, May 20 : Around 200 farmers today gathered at the proposed Tata company's car factory project site in Singur demanding their acquired land back that led to fresh incidents of violence in the area.

Trinamool Congress, which has spearheaded the campaign for the better compensation package for the farmers whose lands were acquired by the State government for the project, today carried out a protest rally in the area.

However, the rally was stopped by police that led to farmers pelting stones on the security personnel.

Police had to fire tear gas shells and also baton-charged the crowd.

"We have dispersed the mob but a constable and a police officer were injured. We are keeping a watch on the situation." West Bengal Inspector General of Police Raj Kanojia told reporters.

Police has detained Trinamool leader Becharam Manna, Rabindranath Bhattacharya, social activist Anuradha Talwar and Medha Patkar.

"Today's incident proves that the people are still resisting there and they will not give up so easily," said Sougato Roy, a Trinamool Congress leader.

Tata Motors started to build its factory in Singur in January to make what the company claims will be the world's cheapest car for 100,000 rupees.

But the project, which has become a test case for the Communists, has been mired in trouble with some farmers who say the government took their land against their will. The government claims that it has compensated most of the farmers.
