Earlier also, the RSS had demanded that the state Education Minister Partha Chatterjee apologise for trying to malign the outfit’s image. The Sangh had also accused the state government of failing to control the situation in Islampur.
Earlier, senior RSS leader Jishnu Basu had said the Chatterjee is blaming RSS for this unfortunate incident. “But the fact is RSS in no way is involved in it. He should either prove what he has said or apologise publicly or else we will launch a massive movement,” Basu had said.
The two students had died in a clash with police in North Dinajpur district over teachers recruitment in a high school in West Bengal. Locals had alleged that the two, who were former students of the school, were killed in police firing but the superintendent of police of North Dinajpur, Sumit Kumar had said the police did not open fire. The SP had, however, admitted that the students had received bullet injuries and had said the police were investigating who had opened fire.
