BHANGOR: With the arrest of four more persons, the total number of persons nabbed in connection with an intra-party clash at Bhangor in South 24 Parganas district has risen to seven, police said today.

Two youths were killed in the clash that took place yesterday at Deota village in Bhangor, which is a Trinamool Congress stronghold and the local gram panchayat is also controlled by the party.

Among those arrested since yesterday were Baonta gram panchayat pradhan Panchu Gopal Mondal, police said.

All seven will be produced at Baruipur court today.

One Bapan Mondal was gunned down by some people, following which the rival group shot dead Rajesh Mondal in retaliation during the clash.

Villagers and Opposition CPI(M) claimed that the clash was between two factions of the ruling party over stakes in the panchayat.

The Opposition alleged that panchayat chief Panchu Mondal had been removed by the group claiming allegiance to TMC leader Arabul Islam.
