கல்கத்தாவில் போலிஸ் தடியடி:பலர் காயம்

நந்திகிராம் துப்பக்கிச் சூட்டில் 14 பேர் கொல்லப்பட்டதற்கு எதிர்ப்பு தெரிவிக்கும் போராட்ட ஊர்வலத்தில் போலிஸ் தடியடி நடத்தியதில் பலர் காயமடைந்தனர்.

Many hurt in India protests over killings, land row
"We want Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee to resign immediately for slaughtering innocent villagers," said Siddiqullah Choudhury, head of Jamiat-e-Ulema Hind, one of the biggest groups for India's Muslims, which organised the protest.

Many of the farmers in Nandigram are Muslims. Human rights groups say the toll from Wednesday's clash could be higher as several people are still missing.

The deaths of the villagers has sparked a national outcry about India's plans to set up low-tax SEZs on fertile farming land, and led to severe criticism of West Bengal's communist government, which is keen to industrialise the state.

On Monday, tens of thousands of Muslim protesters, many wearing white skull caps and white tunics, crammed into Kolkata's streets, causing massive traffic jams.
