What happened on this day in 1982?30th April 1982. In the middle of the Ballygunge rail overbridge, which is one of the busiest parts of South Calcutta, in broad daylight, seventeen sannyasins of Anandamarg were pulled out of the taxis, doused in kerosene oil and were set on fire alive. Who did this? This was done by the ruling party at that time, CPI(M)'s pet goondas.
There were three police stations within a radius of 1 km from the stop of the carnage - Ballyguange GRP, Kasba and Gariahat. Not even one guilty person was punished.
On the day of 30th April, we must know the violent nature of the marxists, which the people of the maoist-affected parts of the country understand very well.
