The situation in Howrah, some 40 km from Hooghly, is peaceful and under control, the report quoted police as having said. 

It also said the shops and markets opened as traffic movement started from morning.

Last week, clashes had erupted between two groups when a Ram Navami procession was passing through Kazipara in Howrah town.

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had alleged the BJP and other right-wing groups were behind the violence.

While, the BJP denied the allegations and demanded a probe by the National Investigation Agency (NIA) into the matter.
Banerjee later held a meeting with the state’s Governor CV Ananda Bose.
