Judicial probe into Basirhat, Baduria unrest
CM slams BJP, action against 2 TV channels
The Bengal government announced the setting up a judicial panel to look into the "communal" clashes at Baduria and Basirhat in the North 24 Parganas district following a Facebook post.
"We want to see who were involved in them and the government will give every input to the judicial commission. Let there be an impartial probe," CM Mamata Banerjee said.
She said her government would take action against "two national-level television channels". "Video clips of an incident in Comilla, Bangladesh, and a Bhojpuri film were being shown as if these incidents had taken place in Bengal," she alleged.
Hitting out at BJP, the CM said, "There is a Fakebook instead of Facebook. I respect Facebook, not Fakebook. BJP is behind the violence in North 24 Parganas."
