Nandigram (PTI): Despite being prevented by CPI-Marxist supporters from entering Nandigram, CRPF personnel on Monday marched to the violence-ravaged village, but their number was not specified.

West Bengal IGP (Law and Order) Raj Kanojia said in Kolkata that the CRPF force had entered Nandigram, but could not specify their number.

The central force went to the Nandigram police station and would be deployed as per plans, police sources here said.

East Midnapore district Superintendent of Police S Panda said the district police would assist the para-military force.

“There will be no problem in joint coordination with the CRPF,” the SP said, adding that a total of five companies of the central force were scheduled to arrive at Nandigram.

Home Secretary P R Roy also said that of the 500 CRPF personnel who had arrived in the state, about 100 had entered Nandigram. He said 200 more central forces personnel were expected to arrive in the state in a couple of days.

Asked why no one was being allowed to enter Nandigram, he said “you know the situation. Even the CRPF is not being allowed in”.

Three companies of the CRPF had to return on Sunday night to Tamluk, the district headquarters, after being stopped by CPI(M) supporters blocking roads.
