AFTER COMMUNAL CLASHES IN BADURIA & BASIRHAT OF WEST BENGAL’s 24 PARGANAS, INTERNET SUSPENDED THERE :

After clashes in Baduria and Basirhat areas of West Bengals North 24 Parganas over a Facebook post, Internet services were disrupted in the Baduria district, reported ANI.  State authorities blocked Internet services in the Basirhat sub-division of North 24 Parganas district of West Bengal less than 100 km to the east of Kolkata to curb spread of rumors on social media and instant messaging services, reports ANI. Currently, section 144 of the CrPC, which deals with unlawful assembly, has been put in place in the area. The decision was taken after an angry mob had torched police vehicles, vandalised shops and blocked roads leading to the India-Bangladesh border after a derogatory post on social media. The Union Ministry on Tuesday had dispatched three companies of paramilitary forces after the state sought the Centres help. The state government has also been asked to send a detailed report of the incident.  The Rediff.com : 5th. July,17
