BJP Workers Lathicharged In Clash With Cops During Kolkata Protest March

The workers of the BJP clashed with the police in Kolkata today as the party tried to hold a protest march to Lalbazar — the state police headquarters in the heart of the city. Unprecedented visuals from the spot showed the police using batons and water cannons on hundreds of workers who insisted on marching on despite repeated police appeals to stop.

The rally is in protest against the killing of two BJP workers at Bashirhat on Saturday and — BJP claims — the death of many other workers in clashes over the last few weeks.

With the rally turning into a fresh showdown between the BJP and the Mamata Banerjee government, the police, since morning, had put elaborate arrangements in place to tackle the possibility of BJP workers breaking barricades.
