Atleast Two Killed As West Bengal Land Protests Turn Violent

The death toll in West Bengal’s Bhangar land agitation has gone up to two as protests turned violent on Tuesday after an angry mob torched at least 10 police vehicles. The deceased have been identified as Mofijul Khan and Alam Mollah. The Indian Express had earlier reported 26-year-old Khan was brought dead to Kolkata’s SSKM hospital with a bullet wound. “Apparently he had a bullet injury in the back, and the cause of death was excessive bleeding,” an officer had said. The victims’ families allege firing by TMC cadres.
