Kolkata, Nov 22 (UNI) The West Bengal Congress today demanded that the Left Front Government order a probe into yesterday's violence to find out the culprits.

Addressing a peace rally, organised by the Congress, party working president Pradip Bhattacharjee said, '' The responsibility lies with the government to identify the culprits behind yesterday's vanadalism. '' Referring to the deployment of army, he said, '' The government and its administration have completely failed to control the situation,'' and clarified that the party had no relation with the AIMF.

At least 70 people, including 35 policemen, were injured, while more than 20 vehicles were either been torched or badly damaged as police lobbed teargas shells and caned the frenzied mob in the All India Minority Forum (AIMF)-sponsored agitation protesting the Nandigram incidents and demanding deportation of Bangladeshi author Taslima Nasreen from the country.
