Body found in Tata Motors’ Singur siteMarch 28th, 2008 - 5:42 pm ICT by admin
Kolkata, March 28 (IANS) The body of a youth employed with the Tata Motors’ small car factory project in West Bengal’s Singur was recovered Friday from the site, triggering fresh tension in the area that has witnessed unrest over land acquisition since June 2006. “The body of Rajkumar Biswakarma was recovered from the Tata Motors factory site. He was a driver involved in the project,” West Bengal Inspector General (Law and Order) Raj Kanojia told IANS.
The body has been sent for a post-mortem examination.
“It cannot be ascertained if it was murder. But the head injury suggests it could be a murder,” Kanojia said. “We have already filed a case in the Singur police station.”
In December 2006, the charred body of teenager Tapasi Malik was found in the fenced-off area of the site during a protest movement against land acquisition for the plant.
Malik, who was allegedly raped and then burnt to death, was at the forefront of the farmers’ protest against land acquisition.
