Jhargram (WB): A JMM supporter was killed
by suspected Maoists at Gopiballavpur in `jangalmahal` belt of
West Midnapore district on Monday, a senior police officer said.

The bullet-riddled body of Parimal Hansda (27), with
head smashed, was discovered from a deserted spot with a
poster lying nearby.
The poster said Hansda was given the extreme
punishment for being a police informer.

Hansda, a resident of Rehera Ghutu village bordering
Orissa, was bodily lifted by the ultras from his residence at
around 9 pm yesterday and the villagers heard gun shots early
this morning.
His body was spotted shortly afterwards.

Mangal Hansda, the uncle of the deceased, is a
well-known JMM leader in the area.
