A day after police resorted to firing at a violent mob in Haulia village in Nadia's Tehatta area killing one, the state government on Thursday ordered a magisterial inquiry into the incident.
However, sources in the police said that Tehatta SDPO Dr Sailesh, who ordered the firing, has told his seniors that he was made hostage in a building where the agitators were trying to forcibly enter "firearms and bombs". He has also said that he was left alone with two of his guards in the building as reinforcement reached one and a half hours late. It is learnt that police had fired three rounds to stop the violent mob from entering the premises that houses SDPO's office as well as residence.
Following the death of the 35-year-old villager in the firing, TMC general secretary Mukul Roy rushed to the district head quarter Krishnagar. It is learnt that Roy held meeting with senior police and administration officials. Roy also talked to family members of the victims and the leaders of the communities over phone.
TMC district chief Nanda Saha said senior party leaders couldn't visit the area as the people are still angry.
