    The internet services also continue to remain suspended in North 24 Paraganas. Heavy security continues to be deployed and officials are monitoring the situation closely.

    The centre had sought a report from the West Bengal government on the violence that flared up following a controversial post on the social media. Home Ministry officials say that they are closely monitoring the situation and if the need be more re-enforcements would be sent to the state.

    In the backdrop of the tension both the Chief Minister of the State, Mamata Banerjee and Governor K N Tripathi are engaged in a war of words. Mamata accused the Governor of rude behaviour. The Governor on the other hand released a statement in which he said that the CM's outburst was aimed at covering up the lapses on part of her government.
