Bloc demands fresh probe into Dinhata firing

Cooch Behar: Left Front constituent Forward Bloc on Tuesday demanded that the Trinamool Congress government conduct a fresh probe into the police firing that left five of its supporters dead at Dinhata in the district in 2008 during the LF regime. Senior Bloc leader Udayan Guha raised the demand at a Martyrs' Day programme at Dinhata, claiming that the commission of inquiry which was set up then was done "to protect a few persons responsible for the firing". Guha, however, said he did not believe that the then chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee had ordered the firing. The Justice N C Sil Commission, which probed the police firing, had justified the police action in which five Bloc supporters and one NVF personnel were killed.
