Kolkata: Bengal’s New Town has turned into a war zone after the police allegedly vandalised a temple situated in a village called Patharghata.

According to the locals, the police initially objected to playing loudspeaker at a religious function but things escalated quickly and they started destroying the temple. Fowling this incident, the villagers also started attacking the cops.

According to reports, the police objected to playing loudspeaker at night, especially when several examinations are around the corner. However, even after they switched off the speakers, police still came and started vandalising the temple and ask the revelers to pack up.

Meanwhile, villagers have come out in protest against such a barbaric act. They have blocked the roads and started burning tires. They also barricaded the entry points of the village and shut down shops and even destroyed police vehicles.

The police have also claimed that the villagers attacked them and injured an officer. The protesters also raised slogans against the Trinamool MLA Sabyasachi Dutta.

After noticing that the situation is getting out of the hand, DC zone one Rabindranath Banerjee and ACP Animesh ray reached the spot. They ordered a probe into the matter and promised that the culprits will be punished.

New Town is a fast-growing planned satellite city of North 24 Parganas district.

Recently, the state faced protest after some Muslim fanatics called for banning Saraswati Puja — the goddess of knowledge, music and culture.

According to reports, the fanatics said that they won’t allow Swaraswati Puja until the state begins to celebrate  Nabi Diwas or Prophet’s birthday.

In 2018, two Muslim administrators of the Mamata regime dropped Saraswati Puja from the circular on annual holidays of Uttar Dinajpur district primary schools. However, the holiday was restored after much protest.
