As many as twenty-three live bombs were recovered from Nandigram [Images] on Wednesday even as no untoward incidents were reported after skirmishes between the Trinamool Congress and CPI-M resurfaced.

District Magistrate (East Midnapur) Anup Agarwal and the Superintendent of Police S S Panda are meeting members of the newly-constituted Trinamul Congress dominated Panchayat Samiti to chalk out solutions.

Meanwhile, the Bhumi Ucched Pratirodh Committee, spearheading the anti-land acquisition movement in Nandigram, has called off its rally at Jadubari Chowk.

Seventeen persons, including 15 Trinamool Congress activists, were injured in clashes on Tuesday.

Violence between the CPI-M and the Trinamool Congress has resurfaced in Nandigram following the murder of CPI-M district committee secretary on August 6.
