According to the Ministry, the Central government also offered assistance of paramilitary forces in the light of reports of continuing violence and tension in some districts of the state.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP from Asansol, Babul Supriyo on Tuesday accused the Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government ' title=' West Bengal government '>West Bengal government of destroying communal harmony by practising "appeasement politics" and called on Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi to apprise him of the situation in Raniganj.

A clash broke out between two groups over a Ram Navami procession in Raniganj on Monday. A person was allegedly hacked to death while a Deputy Commissioner of Police lost a hand after getting hit by a bomb.

Tension soared high as several shops and houses were vandalised and set ablaze during the Ram Navami procession. The police have arrested 19 people for fomenting trouble.

A heavy police force has been deployed and police pickets put up in the area since Monday evening to prevent any untoward incident.
