Fish unit raided
Malda, Feb. 27: A gang of eight to 10 persons raided Sagardighi fish breeding centre at Sahdullahpur last night and beat up the guard who was on duty.
Assistant manager of the centre Mukul Ghosh said there was only one constable at the camp inside the unit, 12km from here, instead of four policemen who were supposed to be there. He added that the constable was also not present at the centre during the incident. When the gang members found nothing worth robbing, they tied up the night guard and fled. This morning Englishbazar police recovered eight bombs and material for making explosives from the spot.
