Kandhmal simmers, Orissa govt orders probe

Kandamal continues to simmer with sporadic incidents of violence. Twenty companies of CRPF have already reached the area.

Additional forces are on standby. In Phulbani, villagers are hiding in forests and they are being attacked even there.

Houses are still burning and in Raikia the situation is much worse with more bodies coming in. Violence continues to grip the area despite the security presence.

The National Human Rights Commission has asked the Orissa government to file a detailed report to it on the communal violence in the state.

The state government has already ordered a probe into the killing of the VHP leader Laxmanananda Saraswati.

Meanwhile, there are reports of increasing communal tension in the state’s Koraput area following clashes between two groups. (NDTV)
