Press Trust of India

Posted: Feb 04, 2007 at 1518 hrs IST

In a fresh build-up of tension, police on Sunday teargassed villagers who tried to set fire to wooden posts along the fenced area of Tata Motors small car project at Beraberi in Singur.

IGP (Law and Order) Raj Kanojia said that police chased the villagers and lobbed four rounds of tear gas shells before much damage was done to the posts.

There was no report of any injury, he said, adding one person was arrested but his political association was not disclosed.

Additional police forces have been deployed in the area as tension prevailed, Kanojia added.

Earlier, on three occasions since last month at least three similar abortive attempts were made by the villagers to protest the acquisition of farmland for the project.

Administration had withdrawn in January end the two month-long prohibitory orders clamped in the area following improvement in the situation.
