Maoist bandh brings Midnapore to a halt

Posted by Admin on August 25, 2009


Procession of the MKSS ActivistsDespite a mixed response in Bankura and Purulia, the 48-hour bandh called by the CPI(Maoist) paralysed life in Jhargram sub-division and Midnapore town in West Midnapore district on Monday. The outfit had called for a 48-hour bandh in five states, including West Bengal, in protest against the arrest of a leader in Jharkhand, who was not produced in court in due time.

The People’s Committee Against Police Atrocities (PCPA) is also observing a bandh since August 18 in the three districts of West Midnapore, Bankura and Purulia demanding the withdrawal of the joint forces from Lalgarh.

The two bandhs paralysed life in Midnapore town and Jhargram sub-division in West Midnapore, Khatra sub-division in Bankura and rural areas in Purulia. West Midnapore DM, N S Nigam, said government establishments, schools, colleges and banks remained closed and public transport has also been hit since August 18.

Bankura DM Golam Ali Ansari said normal life was affected in Khatra sub-division following the bandh. There were no buses on roads but few schools were open in Khatra, said Ansari.

The bandh saw a mixed response in Purulia, as shops and government offices remained open in Purulia town but normal life was affected due to lack of transport services, said a district official in Purulia. Read the rest of this entry »

CPI Maoist PB Member arrested in Jharkhand

Posted by Admin on August 25, 2009


1Ranchi, Aug 25 (IANS) Ranchi Police Tuesday confirmed that they have arrested two top Maoist leaders. The Communist Party of India-Maoist (CPI-Maoist) had called a two-day shutdown in five states to demand the release of the two leaders.

“Two top Maoist leaders were arrested Monday evening from the Ranchi railway station. The arrested Maoist leaders are Amitabh Bagchi alias Anil and Taufid Mullah alias Kartik,” Deputy Inspector General of Police (Ranchi range) R.K. Mallik told reporters here Tuesday evening.

He denied that the two were arrested Aug 19 as claimed by the outlawed CPI-Maoist. Anil is a politburo member and Kartik, a state committee member of the CPI-Maoist.

Both were presented before a Ranchi court and they have been taken on remand by the police.

CPI-Maoist has called two days strike in five states – Jharkhand, Orissa, Bihar, West Bengal and Chattisgarh to protest the arrest of Anil and Kartik.

Maoist strike affected life in rural parts of the state Tuesday. No long-route buses were plying in Jharkhand.

Maoist guerrillas are active in 18 of the 24 districts of Jharkhand. Nearly 1,500 people have been killed in Maoist-related violence in the last eight years.
