CRPF enters trouble-torn Nandigram

November 13, 2007
The Central Reserve Police Force managed to enter most of the villages of violence ravaged Nandigram on Tuesday and were conducting raids, a top police official of East Midnapore district said on Tuesday.

There was no resistance from either the cadres of the Communist Party of India - Marxist or the anti-land acquisition Bhoomi Uchhed Pratirodh Committee. CRPF personnel were patrolling different areas with the police, District Superintendent of Police S S Panda said.

The central forces were setting up five camps in the interior areas as 500 CRPF personnel conducted raids at Sonachura, Gokulnagar, Adhikaripara and other areas, he said.
