In a shocking incident, there has been a link between Odisha with the infamous Birbhum violence that is taking place in West Bengal for over a month. As per the reports two people residing in Odisha have been arrested by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). They have been arrested because the NIA has found links between these persons and the Birbhum violence.
While there has been no official communication in this matter, reports said, the two persons are being questioned by a team of NIA officials at Bhubaneswar. Six women and two children were set afire in the violence which took place in Birbhum following the death of a panchayat representative in Bagtui village of the district.
The premier agency is probing the incident following an order of the Calcutta High Court last month. On April 21, the Calcutta HC ordered the transfer of investigation of the incidents in Birbhum to the NIA.
