Kolkata, May 16 (ANI): Four persons were injured and several vehicles were set on fire as CPI(M) cadres clashed with Trinamool workers in Siuri in Birbhum district of West Bengal.

The clash took place after Shatabdi Roy of Trinamul Congress was declared winner in the Birbhum Lok Sabha constituency. She defeated Braja Mukherjee of the CPI(M).

Trinamul Congress leader Mamata Banerjee, in her press conference (FEED SENT SEPARATELY - VPN Kolkata), had alleged that CPI(M) cadres had unleased terror on Trinamul sympathizers in Birbhum and Hooghly after facing a crushing defeat in the polls.

She demanded that the ruling Left Front government maintain law and order. Ms Banerjee said she would appeal for peace and ask her supporters to keep restraint but if the CPI(M) continued with its attacks, then it was the duty of the government to take action. (ANI)
