Jaipur, Nov 22 (ANI): Controversial Bangladesh author Taslima Nasreen was sent to Jaipur from Kolkata on Thursday, a day after violent protests in West Bengal capital led to the army being called in there.
CPI (M) leader Biman Bose on Wednesday had suggested that Nasreen should be sent either to Jaipur or Gujarat in the wake of protests against her stay in Kolkata.
Her transit to Jaipur has been felicitated by Home Ministry, according to sources.
Curfew was imposed in various parts of Kolkata on Wednesday following violent protests by the All India Minority Forum over the violence in Nandigram and a demand for the cancellation of Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen’s visa. (ANI)
