Three Jharkhand Party (Naren) members killed

Midnapore (WB), Aug 6 (PTI) Blood-soaked bodies of three members of a Jharkhand party were found on a road at Binpur near Lalgarh in West Midnapore district this morning, leading to tension in the area

Police said the bodies belonged to Shaktipada Murmu, Asim Soren and Budhu Hansda, all members of Jharkhand Party (Naren). They were shot dead and their bodies chopped with sharp-edged weapons before being dumped on the Binpur-Dahijuri road at Magura village.

Though the police could not say who were behind the killing, the Binpur MLA, Chunibala Hansda of the JP (Naren), alleged the CPI-M was responsible.

The killings led to tension in the area.

The turf battle that ensued after the joint security forces launched their anti-Maoist offensive in Lalgarh and adjacent areas on June 18 has claimed 19 victims so far.

Yesterday, three persons were killed two of them being CPI-M workers and one JP (Naren) member.
