Names of some 40 lakh people did not find place in the NRC and concerns were naturally raised about their future status as citizens. Although the date for inclusion of names “with proper documents to prove citizenship” has been extended, many fear that even in the revised NRC hundreds of thousands of people are likely to find their names missing.

Home-made crude bombs were used freely. The police have recovered over two hundred unexploded bombs, at Amdanga near Barasat in the North 24-Parganas district.
