Bullet fired at Mamata's car in Nandigram: Trinamool

October 28, 2007 17:57 IST

The Trinamool Congress on Sunday alleged that a bullet was fired at a car carrying its leader Mamata Banerjee near Tekhali bridge in Nandigram on Sunday, but the police denied any such incident.

Trinamool MLA Subhendu Adhikary alleged that a bullet aimed at Banerjee was fired from a CPI(M) party office which fell close to the car carrying Mamata at Sherkhanchak near Tekhali bordering Khejuri.

The bullet, however, did not injure anyone, he said.

"We have recovered the cartridge which fell near the vehicle she was travelling in," Adhikary, an MLA and also the leader of Trinamool-backed Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee fighting acquisition of farmland, said.

IGP (law and order) Raj Kanojia, however, denied any such incident had taken place.

Banerjee was in Nandigram following renewed violence in the area since Friday.
