West Bengal communal riots: Situation in Baduria returning to normal says govt spokesperson

Kolkata: Life in riot-hit Baduria town and adjacent areas in North 24 Parganas district was fast becoming normal on Saturday after communal violence broke out over a Facebook post early this week.

Shops and markets reopened and vehicles started plying as locals came out like other normal days. No untoward incident was reported from anywhere in the district since Friday, a senior home department official said.

Internet services, however, remained suspended.

A large number of police personnel and paramilitary forces would continue to be deployed in the troubled areas which were peaceful since Friday, he said.

"We'll keep the forces deployed till we are sure about the situation. We are keeping a close watch on everything," he said.
