On thursday night, during the ram Navami procession in Howrah, bengal, fighting broke out between two parties. The event happened as the procession was moving through the Kazipada neighbourhood. During the violence, a number of stores and auto-rickshaws were vandalized, and a number of automobiles, including some police cars, were set on fire. The fire was put out by four fire trucks. To scatter the gathering, police used physical force. To reestablish calm in the region, substantial force was used.
Action will be taken against the guilty, according to chief minister Mamata Banerjee, who is protesting in the city against the claimed discrimination against West bengal by the federal government. I have said that no ram Navami procession will be halted, she continued. The police had received very specific instructions from me in this respect. While one group observes annapurna Puja, another observes Ramadan.
