HC Deb 07 April 1930 vol 237 c1743

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can give any further particulars of the riots which took place in Calcutta on 1st April, with the numbers killed and injured, and state whether there has been any further outbreak of rioting since that date?


The official reports that I have received add little, I fear, to the telegrams which have been published in the Press. The known casualties among rioters were three killed and 44 injured. Several of the police were also injured, three seriously. I have received no report of any further rioting. The situation is being discussed between Government and the carters' representatives and inquiries are being made into grievances put forward.
