Several villagers, including women and children, are missing after the police clashed with villagers in India’s eastern West Bengal state, news reports said Sunday.
Villagers claim that as many as 400 people could be missing from two pockets of Nandigram, about 140 kilometres south of West Bengal capital Kolkata, where the police fired on protesting farmers and political activists on Wednesday, NDTV television channel reported.
The villagers were protesting against the state government plan to acquire cropland to set up an industrial zone including a chemical hub financed by Indonesia’s Salim Group.
While the police claim many residents had run away fearing violence, villagers say they have no information about their kin who have not returned for over three days.
Anubha Khera, who has a bullet wound in her leg and is being treated at a hospital near Nandigarm, was quoted as saying that her husband was in hospital and both her children were lost in a stampede that followed the police firing.
“They are not at home. They are missing,” she told NDTV.
