Youth's body found, life crippled for third day

Midnapore (WB), Feb 4 (PTI) An unidentified body of a youth, lying beside a motorcycle, was today found at Binpur in West Midnapore district as the bandh called by Maoist-backed PCPA entered its third day crippling life in the Naxalite pockets.

Police said the body, bearing injury marks, was found lying on state highway but it was not clear if it was a case of murder or accident as no poster was discovered.

Life came to a halt in jangalmahal (forest areas), known to be Maoist strongholds, in Belpahari, Jhargram, Salboni, Lalgarh as well as contiguous pockets in Bankura and Purulia districts for the third day with shops remaining closed and private vehicles off the main roads, reports said.
