Siliguri: Nearly 700 activists of the Naxalite faction CPI-ML (Liberation) courted arrest here on Monday demanding immediate withdrawal of forces from Lalgarh.

Charu Mazumder, Darjeeling district secretary of the faction, led the activists in courting arrest as they scuffled through three security rings in the Siliguri court compound.


All the arrested were later released on personal bonds, Inspector-in-charge Prabhat Chakraborty told reporters.

Alleging that the presence of joint forces was creating trouble for locals in Lalgarh, Charu's father and founder of Naxalite movement Abhijit Majumder told news agencies that people are "struggling for existence following an unprecedented price hike of essential commodities".

Besides demanding withdrawal of joint forces from Lalgarh, the group also demanded that the state government should supply essentials like food grains at subsidised rates to poor families.
