Maoist outfit clears stand on murder charge, hits back at CPM

KOLKATA, March 21: Communist Party of India (Maoist) today brushed aside the allegation of murdering Sujit Pandey, a DYFI leader of Lalgarh, and issued a leaflet claiming that Pandey's murder was the fallout of an inter-party rivalry of the CPI-M.
Pandey, a DYFI leader was shot dead at Dharampur near Lalgarh on 13 February by some unidentified miscreants. The CPI-M, alleged that he was murdered by Maoists. The CPI(Maoist), today issued a leaflet to this effect. CPI(Maoist) state secretary, known as comrade Kanchan in the party circle, said: “Sujit Pandey was killed in firing at a gambling den owned by local CPI-M men. The incident took place following a dispute with others over sharing money. The CPI (Maoist) has nothing to do with the murder of Pandey."
The Maoist outfit further alleged that the CPI-M, in an effort to hide inter-party feud, is hurling charges of murder at the CPI (Maoist) and Police Santrash Birodhi Janasadharaner Committee ~ an organisation of indigenous people waging war against police atrocities on tribals. "Similar incidents have been reported at various places because the CPI-M has become a party of criminals," a Maoist leader said. SNS
