West Bengal is already limping back to normalcy after the incidents of post-poll violence.

On June 5, incidents of post-poll violence were reported across several districts in the State from Cooch Behar in north Bengal, North 24 Parganas district and South 24 Parganas in south Bengal and Jhargram in Jangalmahal region.
