Political violence in West Bengal has become a routine. Several instances of violence were reported during the recently concluded Lok Sabha elections, while many such incidents continued to be reported after the polls.

Recently, clashes had broken out during BJP’s victory processions at Buniyadpur, and Gangarampur in the South Dinajpur district. These clashes were allegedly triggered when police entered into the victory processions accompanied by TMC workers who beat up BJP workers. The situation escalated quickly and police started charging batons and using teargas shells to disperse the crowd. Several BJP workers were injured during these clashes.
