Nandigram (WB), May 9 (ANI): At least 10 people were injured in firing after a clash erupted between the CPI-M and the Trinamool Congress (TMC) workers in Jadubari chowk in Nandigram today during a 12-hour shutdown called by the TMC to protest against the arrest of three of its activists following clashes during Thursday’s polling.

The clash, which saw guns fired by both sides, broke out when the TMC was taking out a procession in the CPI-M dominated area.

Jadubari chowk had witnessed violence during the forth phase of Lok Sabha elections on Thursday in which three TMC supporters were injured.

Among the 17 constituencies spread over seven districts in West Bengal, Nandigram and Singur, the epicentre of the land stir that turned the tables on the ruling CPM in the 2008 panchayat polls, have been declared the most sensitive.

Singur falls under the Hooghly Lok Sabha seat and Nandigram is part of Tamluk. Both Singur and Nandigram will play a key role in determining the results of these two Lok Sabha seats. (ANI)
