The 2010 Deganga riots occurred at the place of that name in India on 6 September 2010 when Muslim mobs resorted to arson and violence against the local Hindu community. The violence began late in the evening of that Monday and continued throughout the night and for several subsequent days. The district police, Rapid Action Force, Central Reserve Police Force and Border Security Force were all unable to quell the problems and the Indian Army was eventually deployed. The army staged a series of flag marches on the Taki Road but the violence continued in the interior villages lying off that road until Thursday, despite the army presence and the promulgation of prohibitory orders under section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code. The situation finally calmed down on 9 September after hundreds of business establishments and residences had been looted, destroyed and burnt, dozens of people injured and several places of worship desecrated and vandalized.
