Police was attacked in

Police was attacked in nandigram also. What happened in nandigram? In Nandigram, one police officer sadhucharan Chattopadhyaya was killed in Feb 2007. In Mar-2007, 14 farmers died in police firing. So policeman was killed first; road was dug; panchayet leader Sankar Samanta was killed; Maoists were very much present in Nandigram with weapons and providing training. Police firing was unfortunate, but it had occurred as an effect of many other unfortunate incidents occurred beforehand. Already sill commission told that dinhata police firing is ok. So, what was wrong with Nandigram firing? Can the present govt or any govt arrange rasagullas for road-diggers? CBI report had re-discovered everything.
