Nandigram, May 6 : The West Bengal govt on Tuesday ordered a CID probe into the alleged stripping of three women supporters of the Trinamool Congress-backed Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee (BUPC) in Nandigram.
"Though no official complaint has been lodged as yet, the CID inquiry has been ordered on the basis of media reports and political reaction to the alleged stripping at Nandigram on Monday," Inspector General of Police (Law and Order) Raj Kanojia told reporters today.

Answering to a question, Kanojia said the situation at Nandigram, rocked by fresh violence prior to the panchayat polls, was 'under control' with no incident reported during the day.
The IGP said deployment of additional forces, including CRPF and state police, had started at Nandigram to restore order and peace.
He said all existing CRPF camps at Nandigram were being strengthened.
