Midnapore (WB): Suspected Maoists on Monday
shot dead a CPI-M leader and abducted two others at Salbani
near Lalgarh in West Midnapore district.

Superintendent of Police Manoj Verma said armed
Maoists entered Shyam Chalak`s home at Keudi village this
morning and shot him dead from close range.

Chalak was secretary of CPI-M branch office at Keudi
village which was recently cleared off Maoists by the police
and paramilitary forces in a flush-out operation.

Verma said one armed Maoist guerilla was arrested in
connection with Chalak`s murder.

Meanwhile, two other CPI-M leaders were abducted in
retaliation by Maoists from Kadasole village near Lalgarh,
hours after the arrest of a Maoist cadre, the police said.
