West Bengal Governor C V Ananda Bose voiced his concerns on Sunday regarding reports of post-poll violence in Sandeshkhali, seeking immediate intervention from Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee to restore order.

Bose informed PTI that he had written to Banerjee, requesting details on measures taken against those responsible for the violence in Sandeshkhali, North 24 Parganas district.

He highlighted alarming incidents involving attacks on women shortly after polling concluded. In response to ongoing violence, Bose stated, "If such attacks continue and the inhabitants are tortured, I will open the doors of the Raj Bhavan for them to come and stay here. They will be provided safe shelter here," he stated.

Within 24 hours post-election, Sandeshkhali witnessed another round of clashes on Sunday. Women in Agarhati village confronted Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel, blocking roads and felling tree trunks, in a standoff over the detention of a person linked to previous attacks on police officers, according to a senior police officer.
