HC Deb 31 March 1927 vol 204 cc1451-2W
Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he has received a report of the firing on a crowd at the village of Kulakati, in which it is reported that 19 deaths were caused, besides wounded, of whom 12 are not expected to survive; whether this shooting took place under the orders of a magistrate: whether the crowd fired upon had used or attempted violence against the magistrate's party or any other person, or had tried to destroy property; and whether an inquiry is being held?


I have still nothing to add to the detailed answer I gave to the hon. Member for Bow and Bromley (Mr. Lansbury) on 24th March, except that the Bengal Government found it necessary to remit to the Commissioner, for further details, the report they had received from him on 9th March.
