Is Maoist leader Kishenji dead or alive?

Lalgarh: Is the Maoist leader Kishanji dead or alive? Security forces have chanced upon a poster at Purnapani village in the Lalgarh area of West Bengal that has once again renewed the debate.

The poster signed by an unknown entity calling itself Tribal Platoon says "We will not allow the misuse of Shaheed Kishenji for selfish gains."

What has triggered the debate is the use of the term shaheed before Kishenji's name which suggests that he is dead.

"The police parties have seized some posters in which November 25 is mentioned. We will try to find out if the Maoists are planning anything for November 25 or not. Apart from that they have mentioned something about Kishenji. Shaheed Kishenji is the word used in the posters, but this is a part of the investigation. We don't have any authentic information if Kishenji is dead or alive," said Manoj Verma, Superintendent of Police, West Midnapore
