Singur, July 30 (PTI): An engineer working at the Tata Motors small car factory at Singur in Bengal, was injured when unidentified persons pelted stones at his car.

The incident occurred last night at Ratanpur when M. Khatua, an engineer of Shapoorji-Pallonji Limited, entrusted with civil construction of the small car plant, was returning from the factory.

Khatua was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was administered first aid.

In a separate incident, villagers who tried to enter the project site from adjoining Khaserberi village yesterday, were driven out by police.

Meanwhile, more crackers were recovered from the project site at Gopalnagar area on Monday, police said.

Posters have also appeared under the banner of Krishi Jami Raksha Committee in areas of Singur asking “outsiders” to leave. Police have been deployed in full strength in three railway stations — Singur, Kamarkundu and Madhusudanpur — where labourers disembark from trains to report for work at the factory. Security has been strengthened at Dobadhi village which has residents engaged in construction work.
