Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has labelled the killing of four people in central force firing at Cooch Behar "a genocide" and said the victims were "sprayed with bullets in the chest and neck". "This is genocide. They have fired just like a fire spray. They should have fired below the wait. But they have fired at neck and chest," she said.

As per news report of NDTV, Ms Banerjee, who was speaking at a press meet in Siliguri in north Bengal today, said, "The CISF is not trained for mob control. Now they want to suppress facts. That's why they banned entry into Cooch Behar for 72 hours," she added. "What has happened is unprecedented. I wanted to stand by the people of Sitalkuchi today but I have been stopped for 72 hours. I will go and meet the victim families on the 14th, once the EC ban on entry of politicians ends," she said.
