Kolkata: With a student killed in campus
violence and another blinded in the eye in a political strife in West Bengal, Governor M K Narayanan Wednesday said some action
needs to be taken in this matter to "end violence".

"Some action needs to be taken," Narayanan told reporters here.

Asked about his discussions yesterday with Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee, Narayanan said, "We discussed all issues. Yes, we discussed violence."
"We both agreed violence has to end or it has to be reduced to the extent possible," the governor said.

A college student was killed in Howrah and another was blinded here in violence over student union elections on December 16.
Narayanan had earlier issued an appeal stating that the violence was sullying the image of the state and said he would speak to the chief minister.
