Chinsurah, Jan. 8: Singur was tense tonight after bombs exploded close to the fencing around the Tata Motors plot.

Members of the Trinamul Congress-backed Save Farmland Committee alleged that men guarding the plot hurled bombs around 10 pm. “Three bombs were hurled from inside the fencing to create panic among villagers,” alleged Manik Das, its leader.

Hooghly police chief Supratim Sarkar said: “We have received allegations from both sides about the bombing.” The guards alleged that some villagers hurled bombs to scare them away.
